    In the early 2000's I bought and built a kit just like this. It is a terrible peice of crap, and only cost 150 back then. Not advertised as a PRS kit and exactly like this . he.

    I did learn a lot. Once I knew it was never going to be a guitar that could be played it got put in a corner.

    Then a buddy's bonfire party came and had many bands in the day and night. I brought this guitar. During my band set I had it tuned to open E, solo time, ran to the fire and slide soloed! Gave the nod to my bud, he placed a chair in the center of the fire, strummed the E with the amp cranked and while it was roaring and feeding back put it on the chair. Ran back to the "stage" and continued solo watching the guitar burn, feed back, and die a fiery death.

    True story, and good riddance to bad rubbish!

    At the risk of sounding dumb, this is just how inept scammers think we are.

    There are a lot of these kits out there. I have also seen just bodies, just necks, bodies and necks. Amazon, eBay have them all the time, all have PRS in the label to make it easy to search for them. I've even seen bolt on necks that could easily fut a Strat body. These sellers are just out to make a buck, they dont care who they rip off.

    It didnt sell. It was suspended. The seller revised the description to remove PRS association.

    Now its a kit with some birds like on about every other for sale site..

    This is acceptable now? :mad: It’s ok to drop the “PRS” reference and keep this verbiage?

    “It made it's way here to the US before Trump blocked the import of Chinese goods. It took 3 months to make and took another month to get shipped to the US.”

    What a great American.

    I reported it to Reverb through “chat.” We’ll see how they respond.

    Hoping for the best, but prepared to be underwhelmed with their response.

    Oh I see, the seller must be the same person who had his previous post suspended.
