Replica guitars or Copies that dont quite 'Replicate'

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BOW-WOOD-GIBSON-SG-REPLICA-BRAND-NEW-BOXED_W0QQitemZ7382943658QQcategoryZ2384QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

What part of this SG is supposed to be a replica? i could have done a better copy from memory.
But its the sub-header quote that takes the biscuit,

'pls note, this is not an original gibson just a replica '

Classic, as if we need the warning!

Freudian slip on the brand name. "Bow wood" as in, what'll happen to the neck in three months' time :lol:

Does it look out of proportion or is that just my eyes?

A touch of astigmatism maybe, Mike, but you only frighten the smaller children.

BowWood actualy means the wood was sourced from Bow - East london, its actualy cut and built up from several carefully selected peices of builders external shutter ply, which was located and swiped from a skip in Bow Common lane, E3. on 12-03-2005, so its a well seasoned peice.
If you look carefully and hold it up against the light, you can still make out the initials of the wood supplier, LBTH (London Borough of Tower Hamlets).

Could they actualy get the neck any further into the body?

You couldn't take it backstage. How could you get an "access all areas" pass for that fretboard? Speaking of initials, can I make out "OSB" (orientated strand board)? It's what passes for window panes in Bow, doesn't it?
