    Expresses concern that if you sell it you could have problems for selling a counterfeit

    Also, buys multiple counterfeit products to review on his YT channel.

    I'm not sure buying them is a crime though ..... Granted it'd be mighty interesting to read his ads when he moves them on...

    They are illegal to import, but I've never heard of Customs going after the buyers. They just seize the shipment and the buyer is left holding the bag if the seller doesn't replace it.
    They often get around it on Gibsons by painting over the headstock logo with black paint that is easily removed.

    In some states, such as Illinois, mere possession is a felony.

    I did not know that.

    I get that. I was just pointing out that there are easier guitars to fake for similar profits. But I supposed there are niche markets. If I saw that scalloped fretboard my first thought wouldn’t be wondering if it’s fake. I guess that makes it profitable.

    This is a...Mei Huang strat...forged in the wudang mountains by chinese monks/luthiers....the construction of it ,being quite deceptive,makes it look like a run of the mil s type crap in the hands of the general public but in the hands of a real master it transforms into the ultimate sonic weapon piercing through space and time feeding of the chi of the chosen one who wields it.....a true work of art that can easily be optained for 134 dollars plus shipping....
