Modern Gretsch Guitars

Grets Falcon Fraud-Con

NFI. But what I really mean is NFFI: No Freakin' Financial Interest!

I guess they're getting better at this and at least they're honest about their manufacturing origin. You could pay a few bucks more and get a most excellent 5420 which gives you the real deal and the extra "ch."

no re "Grets"...

awfully tiny for a Falcon, no?

How can eBay allow products like that on their website? Isn’t that a copyright violation?

“It sounds just as good as it looks, if not better.”

Well, that’s ok then. Would hate to think it was a PoS...

I came to the conclusion a long time ago, that life is too short to play counterfeit guitars. I can certainly understand the financial draw, but that's what savings accounts are for. I'd rather just tuck money away, and buy the real deal. This is another "to each their own" thing. There's a happy buyer for just about everything.

Look Ma! A real White Flacon!

Ebay doesn't care. Reverb will flag this stuff. I had a fake Gibson doubleneck- making it clear it was fake with price to match, and they still woudn't allow it.

Thankfully, I don't see them getting better. This one shows all the usual wrongness. Shape, Bigsby, etc. Even lists wrong materials. Quite faux, unconvincing. Bad fake. If you get defrauded by this, you didn't know enough to even be shopping.

Unless it's just a costume guitar.

Oddly, if it's really all mahogany, it's at least an interesting spec. Possibly a decent build, and might even be worth that money - if it wasn't incompetently posing as something it's not.

A shot of the headstock could really be interesting.

Sooo...................Do y'all think they'd take counterfeit money for their fake guitar?

Being a student, you must indulge yourself in plenty of academic education and courses. It does not end here. No matter which academic course you choose, you need to write different types of assignments as per your teacher’s needs and requirements. These assignments need to be prepared as per the specific guidelines and instructions provided by your teacher. An Assignment Help service is necessary to take off some burden from the student’s shoulders. It is not possible for a student to write a herculean amount of assignments while preparing for their exams. They need some space to maintain their social and extra-curricular activities as well.

Well I can see one improvement over the previous China copies and that's the shape of the F-holes. This looks so much better...

21

I wouldn’t say they are getting better. Those look super fake.

The posts are collapsed because readers take action against them to do so. Deletion requires the actions of an administrator which appear to be missing at this time. I suppose that Baxter is simply occupied with other things. There do seem to have been a lot of spammers of late.

The Gibson and Fender like guitars they seem to be doing a good job of copying but Gretsch style look really fake and no way to be fooled by them.

I once owned a pretty decent Chibson Les Paul, but I purchased it from one of those Chinese retail sites. I've never seen blatant counterfeits like this on eBay before. They're going to have trouble with this, as Gretsch makes affordable Electromatic models that are the real deal, if someone is simply looking for a Gretsch. BUT, if they're looking for something that resembles a White Falcon, perhaps they'd dive into this as White Falcons are far above Electromatics in price. And really, Chinese hollowbody guitars can be pretty decent. I couldn't do it, though. If it were, say, $200 then perhaps....
