    Jesus Christ, this thread is something else. :lol: I bet OP never foresaw people lining up for their turn on the soapbox when he was taking pictures of his guitar, much less being accused of entitlement, status seeking and unethical behavior.

    Eh, I knew people were going to have some strong opinions on cheap chinese knockoffs. I just wanted to inform anyone that might be interested in one that mine at least was worth the money.

    Based on some people's opinions in this thread, everybody should be buying Mercedes Benz cars because Karl Benz invented the petrol automobile and every other manufacturer is ripping off Benz. Or everybody that plays a 12 bar blues is ripping off whoever the fuck invented 12 bar blues.

    Ridiculous.

    to OP: you do you mate. Guitar looks awesome, enjoy it and disregard some of these responses.

    I’d appreciate it if you didn’t put words in my mouth. If you have anything to add to the discussion, then I’d be happy to debate it with you (in another thread, so you don’t clog up TS’s thread). Otherwise, either try to understand someone else’s point of view, or refrain from making ad hominem, uneducated attacks. I’ll debate you any time, because it’s clear you’ve done no thinking or research into IP issues.

    I find some hidden humor in the fact that this post:

    is immediately followed by this post:

    Two completely different, conflicting purposes for posting in this thread. What an incredible place!

    Happy NGD, doesn't look bad. Like the innovative slanted centerline... :banana:

    As long as there's no Blackmaching logo on it, it's not a legal issue. The Rolex copies some people are referring to HAVE a Rolex logo on them - that's why they are illegal.

    This guy nailed it right here. People trying to pass off a fake black machine or Chibson or whatever else as genuine are 100% wrong, people that buy the copy knowing it's a copy and not caring, are not people that value the IP or art of it anyways, I know I would never be happy with a copy of something, or even an Epiphone that I upgraded the components on I know I would always feel I sold myself short, so there will always be those people that want the genuine thing.

    Also in terms of black machine... I really don't see the innovation, like maybe I'm really missing something about what makes them so special, but besides the scooped headstock I see very little that is original design being ripped off. Like besides quality handmade workmanship it's a superstrat?

    Given how much derivative, cookie-cutter shit the people on this forum listen to, buy or play anyway, I can't see why anyone would have any issue with another clone. It's only as ethically bankrupt as listing meshuggah and periphery as "influences" then sounding like a covers band playing the sections in the wrong order.

    People can like and play whatever they want, but I think there's a point in there about the pretense of originality, especially in, ahem, certain musical communities. Most things are just re-aggregations of already-existing elements, yet some of these aggregations are deemed original at arbitrary points in time. A certain configuration of chugs & widdley sequences is somehow a vanguard of modernity in music. A certain configuration of decades-old common guitar features is somehow an original IP that gets litigated in $300 NGD threads.

    Both grains on the body appear to be going in the same direction. In regards to structural integrity, are there any glaring downsides to having two body planks glued diagonally like that?

    So, is my takeaway from your argument that an unauthorized replica guitar is cool because you don't like djent?
