    As hard as I try to warn folks here off Ali Express and small label MIC guitars, I seem incapable of taking my own advice. I saw this one on eBay and being a sucker for anything in a Cherry Sunburst, of course I had to bite (If my ex-wife had come with a CSB finish, despite everything, I might still be married).

    I was told it has a mahogany body and maple neck and although it has a Gibson style headstock, there is no logo nor fake serial number/Made in USA stamped on it. With the $20 lefty upcharge, it came to a couple of bucks under $200 shipped and should be here by the beginning of June:

    Bootiful, as a late Alabama friend used to say (RIP Charles).

    Good Luck - there are some really nice looking orange stained 335 style guitars in ChinaLand but I just am not up to dealing with anymore cheap guitars that need fixing. Not referencing yours of course...

    Pretty, best of luck it is legit and makes it to you without falling victim to U-boats or highwaymen.
