Buying Chinese Guitars for Cheap – A Follow-Up
If you haven’t already figured it out, this is a follow-up of my “Buying Chinese Guitars for Cheap” post (which can conveniently be found here).
So I emailed Sunsmile Guitars to see if they would send me a free review unit to share with you readers. I’m not sure if this an act of miscommunication or just a default email, but this is the reply I received:
Dear The Dealsician,
Many thanks for your inquiring.
Please be so kind to check our price lists in the attachment.
Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions or suggestion.Looking forward to hearing from you.
A little Engrish ridden. Which leads me to believe that Anna doesn’t get that I don’t want to buy a guitar, I just want to review one. The email lacked the attachments that Anna had promised me about, but a quick email later, I had the whole inventory prices at my fingertips. I opened up the tables and started searching around looking at the prices for the guitars. THESE THINGS ARE CHEAPER THAN SLICED BREAD! Their SST 01 Strat knock-off costs a mere $37.50. Their double-necked SG knockoff costs $140.
But wait! There’s more! Need a hard-shell case with that? $25 please. And an 80-watt amp? $85. You can even put on a custom logo most of the things they sell. Check out all of their products here.
Last thoughts: I’m not quite sure how much shipping is, I have emailed them requesting shipping costs but no replies so far. If you buy from Sunsmile, and they turn out to be scammers (doubtfully, they’ve been at Musikmesse) or whatever else might they be, then you take full responsibility for your actions. I will try to get a review unit ASAP. Good Luck!
