    I've seen this rareelectricguitar site a couple of time and I understood is quite sketchy.
    I got it that it makes (Korean or Japanese) replicas of famous or discontinued guitars, but how does it actually work?
    Can someone please explain?
    Thanks :)

    Korean company that makes "custom" replicas of guitars. Some have a good experience with them, others don't. Mine wasn't great, but at least I got my refund :)

    Someone ought to report that on that page. I'm convinced it's one from rareelectricguitars (even the pickup switch is the same). I don't mind people selling or buying this stuff, but at least be honest about its origins.

    Is it just me or do the fret ends extend beyond the neck edge?

    This is the worse second only to that Les Paul switch.

    Very true. I've lost count of the fake 'Jems' I've reported on there
    and I think only one was removed.

    Maybe if enough people report it, it'll get someone's attention?

    I get pretty upset about seeing a fake Ibanez being sold as a customized real Ibanez.

    It still shows up when looking for Ibanez jpm, but when you click the link it says "This listing (282085125291) has been removed, or this item is not available.". Hope that means it got deleted and not sold.
