Gibson Les Paul

I'm new to guitars, and i was wondering what the differance is between a USA made Gibson Les Paul, and a Chinese made Gibson Les Paul? Also, why are the Chinese versions so much cheaper? Is the sound for the Chinese made worse in some way?

I do have a Mask and Cape somewhere in the house, im thinking of a name like Captain Fookoffchinesescammingbustardsanddie, but i just cant fit the letters on the codpeice.

Now you're just being modest.

You havent seen the size of the codpeice !

The highjacking ones, once eBay refused to pull them (quote) "the original seller may have given permission to the other seller to borrow text and pictures for a similar item for sale" I started having a battle with.

I created "Sinoscamtosser" and bid left, right centre on £600 Gibsons, Fenders, etc. As soon as I got their bank details I posted them up on this site, sent it to eBay's fraudwatch etc. Do you know what happened? Fleeb sent me a "congratulations on your successful purchases" email. I replied back that I had no intention of paying for the items and I was deliberately being a NPB because they weren't doing the job properly. Surprisingly, they still haven't cancelled my Sinoscamtosser s/n :shock:

You see, if we all did this we could wipe out ebay scamsters overnight!

Anyone joining up brothers?

We do run the risk of IP banning. Which is unfortunate because a team of fake buyers would combat the problem to some extent. Would make a great 20 second 'oddball' piece at the end of the news too.

We could run a competition, who has bought the most Chinese sellers vintage amps and guitars.
A league table... :lol:

Winner gets a 27$ '60 Les Paul.

I once bought 8 vintage amps in 5 minutes, all at the BIN price, it was quite fun asking for 'extra' pictures of the amps from the Chinese scammers before i sent payment, thier eyes lit up when i mentioned sending cash through the post. Well worth a giggle.
They were then 'Unregistered' from ebay so they couldnt leave me bad feedback.

How were you able to rely on them being subsequently unregistered?

they always disapear a week after the auction.
