    yeah, that's probably made by the same korean factory as the galvestons. they sell under a few different names - there was a german guy who came around here sometimes named silverstar who had a 7 string of the same name. looked just like that.

    That one looks interesting.. The guy on eBay is touting these as "handmade" with Barts... They look anything but... :rolleyes:

    does anyone else feel the distinction of the word 'Prestige' is somewhat lessened when scribbled in 5th-grade penmanship?

  6. If they're Bartolini pickups, why don't they say "Bartolini" like they always do?

    Fake. Stay clear.
     
  8. Hey, since when did custom instruments come with tacky red instruction tags on the knobs? That's more like Ibanez-ish thing to do.... :D
     
  9. what's with the string spacing at the nut?
    the wishnevsky school of setup?

    playing around the first few frets would be a nightmare. erk:meh:

    the spacing between the B, E and A strings appears to get WIDER away from the bridge....
