I have owned my own sign business for 10years. I recently purchased a building. I have some extra room (12'x12' room) and possibly room for growth....so I have started a guitar shop! I am not only wanting to modify and sell guitars, but I also want to offer my own brand. Why? Well, if I offer other companies guitars my profit is a lot less than if I built my own or sold my own brand. This topic is about my discoveries with Chinese guitar companies. You are welcome to share your thoughts or ideas. I have order guitars from 3 companies so far and in the process of ordering from a fourth. I have received one guitar and waiting on the others. Here is the first company that I ordered from.... Weifang Fei Yang Instrument Co., Limited I learned that not all Chinese guitar "companies" are guitar factories. These so called companies are merely brokers. They find the guitar you are looking for and add their cut , collect your PayPal transfer and ship off your guitar. This broker sent me what I asked for, but the insides were sad! A hack soldering job! I look like they ripped them out of another guitar and dropped the in my sample. There are at least 3 wires that are cut that go nowhere! Bare wires exposed..sad! With shipping this guitar cost me $164. The authentic one goes for $4,500. Anyways, I can rewire, drop new pups in, change the crappy plastic nut,etc(debrand if I want to sell it).... and have a decent guitar. But, as for ordering more to resell..forget about it! The same guitar from an actual China factory is about $50 less ($109 was before shipping) I will post when the others arrive.
