    Finally one of the worst guitar companies or guitar scammers in Europe is stopping production of guitars or whatever you might call the abominations they were selling! This the announcement they have put out:

    "Hi there,Mithras Invictus LLC has decided to put an end to the Emperion Guitars production as of today, all remaining guitars are available at very special prices at this link

    The production's end affects Horizon Pickups as well. The activity of Titan Cabs will continue regularly.
    Warranty and tech support will be provided upon depletion of the current stock. No more custom orders will be accepted from now on,
    we would like to thank all the people who supported us throughout the years. All ongoing commitments will be honored.
    Emperion Guitars Staff"


    So goodbye Emperion guitars, you will not be missed! :fawk::fawk::fawk::fawk:

    ^ there is a huuuge thread here on the forums from last year.
    Basically they launched a very promising pre-order campaign. Then they delayed the guitars for months and when they actually were delivered to the customers - they were incredibly flawed - some unplayable.

    I wonder how playable those b-stock guitars are.

    Funny how they say warranty does not apply, which is in violation of EU law in any case. You could also get a refund up to 14 days (after receipt I guess)

    If anything like the ones actually delivered (not all were) they actually won't be playable.

    Extremely entertaining read -> emperion-interview-answers
    I missed this whole scandal when it happened, but it was sure worth reading some old threads :lol:

    @USMarine75
    The guys above gave the necessary explanations and links to threads. As one of the people that ordered a guitar and got a train wreck I was one of the lucky ones that received back his money minus Paypal fees. Some guys here got royally screwed. There was no quality control whatsoever and at best the guitars had only cosmetic flaws that you wouldn't see in 100$ guitars. They claimed that all of this was the doing of one of their partners that went behind their backs and changed specs with the company and cut corners but nobody really bought it.
    After that they tried to reinvent their company with the Revo series but it seems these guitars sucked donkey balls also. So now they are through making firewood that passes for guitars.

    Sorry, I know this has probably been covered, but Im having a good laugh at some of these "specs"

    "Super double action truss rod"
    "Headstock angle: 13” degree"
    "
    Set neck with ultra access "
    Original Floyd Rose -> now if this one is true, im kinda interested lol

    Cracked fretboards, different wood, sloppy roots, awful paint jobs, bad fret jobs, different hardware and the list goes on. There was another guy from Germany that ordered from the Revo series and it was the same, if not worse, piece of shit as their previous run.

    Jeez. I can't imagine. As someone who would LOVE a custom guitar, but just doesn't have teh dollahz, I would be livid if this crap showed up at my house.

    Sounds like "specs" in the Sears catalogue for Nova guitars.

    6 strings
    master volume and tone controls
    rosewood fingerboard
    inlaid fret board and side dot markers
    5-position pickup switch for sound variation
    adjustable tremelo bridge with whammy bar
    closed chrome-plated tuning gears
    each have 3 single-coil pick ups

    ^ Directly from sears.ca...

    So do these have any relation to Invictus guitars? Sorry if that is a really dumb question.

    50€ is more a fitting price for those.

    Jesus, if I was making a guitar and I built a fretboard like that I'd at least have the decency to throw it away. And they expect people to actually PAY for these...
