Hey! It's not an Alembic any more! It's a Schecter!

  2. I'm pretty sure its neither.
     
  3. That's what I meant 4-strings. :D Friggin scammers and their 50 dollar no-namers.
     
  4. One more time, SCAM attempt?

    The Alembic one was much funnier.

    Oh my, that Schecter looks a lot like a Samick?

    Excellent condition? It's unplayable with the chipped nut. What makes unplayable = excellent?

    MSRP 849? I doubt it's more than 349.

    What a piece of crap. Maybe I'd pay $100. If it included a hardshell case and a Trace Elliot V6.
     
  9. At least the seller is honest about it being a Korean rip-off. :bag:
     
  10. "We do our best to present accurate, detailed information about every item we sell."

    Yes, of course....

    Doesn't a ripoff have to at least resemble the object it claims to be? :confused:

    Bait & switch, more like.
     
  12. We'll see if that's true. I just emailed the seller with a detailed explanation of the scam AND a link to this thread AND a link to real pics of Schecter Model T pics. If he's up to his word, he'll soon realize his mistake.

    The seller looks pretty honest. Check out the other stuff he's selling and his feedback.

    I think he got scammed by someone.
     
  14. In an unrelated note, Hambone, that new fairlane looks absolutely beautiful.

    Did anything ever come of that one-off body you sent me pictures of? I really want one.

    kudos.

    That CR4 is a complete FAKE. We notified the Seller, Ebay and the 'Feds' about these counterfeits showing up again.
