    I've seen that site before. There's even a guy here in NJ that is trying to sell one of these fakes on Craiglist.

    I'm more of a "Funder" man myself.
    Seriously....It is shocking they can get away with it when there is so much legal focus on design attributes between established guitar companies. Think they need to get Ed's law team on this.

    I think these are similar to a Wolfgang knock off my son has. It's a Wolfgang Stealth body and neck. He changed out the cheap Floyd ripoff for a black original, the cheap tuners for Schallers and added a kill switch. The pick ups that came on the guitar are Epiphone, he decided to keep them for now. He absolutely loves the guitar.

    There are some incredible knockoffs for sure. Remember the old Tokai LP's? Those things also incredibly accurate reverse engineered guitars for very little money. A few yrs. back, I was in Rufus Guitars in Vancouver, and they had three EBMM Eddie type guitars (can't remember the brand), but they were amazingly accurate, and had the basswood bodies with the solid flame caps as well...though not as high grade obviously. They even had a pimp Cadillac purple doubleneck similar to Ed's DN guitar/ 6 string bass, but instead it had a 12 string top neck, and a Gotoh Floyd equipped guitar on the bottom. The standard guitars went for around 6 or 7 hundred, and the 12 string DN was around 11 hundred. Not bad for a pretty faithful reproduction.
    I've never seen them since, so they must have just gotten in those few. If I had been prepared, I would have bought one, because they played and sounded incredible. The neck felt different than the EBMM Axis/EVH model...a little flatter and thinner, but that's actually what I prefer, and why I don't own an actual EBMM, so it would have been cool to own something with that look, but more comfortable for me to play right out of the box.
