FAKE IBANEZ GUITARS FROM CHINA?

Having regularly seen the fantastic looking Ibanez guitars listed for £4.99 with £190 P&P (from China of course!), I figured they were losing on the guitar but making on the postage. I have just been on the Ibanez website and there is a warning posted on their home page claiming that people are selling counterfeit Ibanez guitars on auction websites. It goes on to say that if the postage is considerably higher than the guitar then it is almost certainly a fake. This is probably blindingly obvious to most people anyway but I thought I'd point it out because although I was suspicious of it, I didn't think for a minute that the guitars could be fake. There are genuine sellers out there and there are plenty of things to look for in the ad to identify them (check feedback, UK sellers are safest, check item description and photos etc...). Ibanez are great guitars, bag yourself a real one for a bargain, not a cheap and worthless copy!
