Fake? Counterfeit? Replica? Tribute Guitar? Whatever you might call them, they seem to be here to stay. Our good friends in the east are cranking out “Made in USA” Gibson Les Paul guitars for a fraction of the price of the genuine article. In this Gear Demo / Review, I take a look at a $170 Les Paul, which I ordered directly from China. Just how bad is it? Unsurprisingly… not that bad. Although players often buy these guitars with modifications in mind, for my review, this guitar is completely stock. I go over the specs, playing examples, and talk about the construction and materials. I close the review by asking the viewers some questions about their feelings regarding the ethics of knowingly buying counterfeit products. Take a look!
