    I apologize in advance if this is a faux pas subject, but I visited my local music store today, and a friend there told me a story of a guy who went to China and came back with a knock off LesPaul that rivaled its $3000 cousin for..$300. I checked the website and found this:

    NEW IBANEZ JEM 7V SOLID BODY ELECTRIC GUITAR for sale at cheap discount price, id 21523517- buy and sell online

    There's tons of other knockoffs on there to be found at ridiculous prices... Has anyone had any experience with these?

    Played a few knock off Jems in my time and they were all awful.

    Awful! They make pretty wall decor. That's about it.

    Played a fake jem once, it was worse than a 50 dollar guitar you could buy anywhere.

    If you look at that guitar with it's Lo-TRS II and shoddy work and think it's decent........I'm just not going to say it. :lol:
