    Does anybody know anything about these guys? I found their site earlier today and posted about it on another thread and unwittingly interest has been piqued, including mild, unforeseen GAS from some corners of AGF. Hilariously, they also list two guitars for $0 including free shipping, WTF! You can get headstocks with Grote or with no logo as well.

    Here is the $0 guitar!

    It's worth at least twice the asking price!

    That flamed blue Tele looks interesting. I wonder if the offset is real or it is an optical issue.

    I tried to check out but it has some funky "engrish" fields and no place to enter your city. Otherwise I'd place an order

    I can place the order except for it wants me to choose a shipping method and of course, there's no way to do so.

    I did it to and have come to the conclusion that what they want is your address and phone number with no intention of shipping us anything.

    I did. No city. Then I reloaded the page, chose "United States" and when it came to states .... I got only Chinese provinces!

    Is this some scam by HBowner?

    Then why can't we order? And why is somebody offering to give away a guitar WITH free shipping. that makes no sense at all, even from the point of trying to build interest in their products.
