    I came across a website called,
    www.musiciangears.com

    Everything is on average 50% to 90% off map price. This obviously sounds way to good to be true and I have never even heard of this website before. Has anyone had any experience with them at all?
    Thanks,
    Jay

    Scam, if you get anything at all, it'll be counterfeit junk.

    "A list of the replica product(s) to be exchanged or refunded
    We are not responsible for any import tax charged on your package.

    Thank you! My gut was saying they had to be replicas but I couldn’t find anything on their site admitting it. I guess the old saying is true, “If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is.”

    It'd be rough to go through life as someone who thinks that could possibly be legitimate.

    Impossible. If it were real the manufacturers could not even make a profit.... As a example an American pro Jazz bass 144.00 dollars... Kidding right?

    Total scam.

    The URL was registered 3 weeks ago at godaddy by someone in China. This is the second one I've seen this month.

    Most anyone can slap together an ecommerce site that looks somewhat legit and then fill it with stock photos of products with insanely low prices. Foolish people enter their credit card numbers, personal information, etc and anxiously wait for a shipment that never arrives.

    The guitars aren't replicas, they're non-existent. But your money and perhaps your identity just went 'poof'.

    Whois musiciangears.com

    Your first clue is that the word "gear" can't be plural in the sense of musical equipment.

    I've seen that same site under several different names.
