    I saw him for the first time in May and what a great show. I almost did not go because I thought I'd be out of town.

    Since I went solo I got a great ticket and not only that I met a cool guy sitting next to me, guitar player, we have become friends since.

    Then the day after I stopped by my favorite burrito place in town and saw that the concert poster was still taped to the wall so I grabbed it.

    I really think the reasons vary,

    For instance I have seen Jimmy Page fans buying fake SG double necks, it is hard to justify buying one of those specialty guitars for a handful of songs for what a real Gibson sells.

    Similar case could apply to an ES335, I can relate here somewhat here, I love the looks and sound of a 335 but it is not my main type of guitar, I bought an Epiphone ES335 Pro and will settle for that.

    I also see players that already have a bunch of Gibsons but they get a fake as well, it may be curiosity or the desire of amassing more guitars in a collection but knowing that the $$$$ cannot be longer justified. I can also somewhat relate here, I already have my nice guitars, sometimes I see a cheap guitar and I'd like to buy it just to mess with it but since I do not need it I do not want to spend a lot of money.

    At the end of the day folks that buy those Chibsons do not really care the differences in woods or craftsmanship. They will play in a video for 5 minutes and say they are the same or very similar as if guitar ownership can be summarized in 5 minutes.

    I think there are different reasons people are OK getting a fake but you are right, they do need work and parts to make them decent players.

    Personally I'd rather have a low end Gibson than a modified Chibson.

    The string is binding in the nut slot, your luthier should've fixed that when he did the setup. tell him what is happening he should immediately know.

    Hi! I saw the Fender Champ head that you've built and I think it's an amazing job you did!!! I'd like to do the same for a Victoria 518-T (copy of a Fender Champ 57) Could you provide any help? Or even, would you want to build another that I would buy from you?

    Great. Unknwon is a great act and guitarist, not a lot of people get into him on this forum though. I plan to see him every time he is in town. I have seen him 3 times now.
