Anybody have any experience with these guys? Apparently they perfect knock off guitars and are of top-notch quality.
I saw someone online with a REG Delonge in satin black and it looked pretty darn good- mahogany wood, dirty fingers pickup, everything right to spec.

I purchased the black. Apparently it takes 18 days to make then they ship. So you know they are taking their time. I also called paypal to check to see if their account has had issues (fraud) and turns out they have had no issues at all with it. So fingers crossed ill put a review up here in a month or so when i get it !

I am not expecting a lot out of it. After I switch out the tuners and pickup (put a df in) I'm sure it will sound as good if not better then the epiphone . And looks cooler

I havent talked to them much yet, but so far so good. I guess they send you updated pictures when the guitar is done to see fi you like it before they ship.. which is awesome. So far I recommend but we will see when i get the guitar! Ill fill u in buddy.

A guy on AVA movement was happy with them...said they replied to emails within 24 hours and he sent about 30 in the process of getting his guitar.

Even though I have had all the Delonges. I do like the Green one with the actual smiley inlays. I may have to get one soon. I'm not sure if anyone read but in the about us it looks like they all come with a hardshell case. I also like the Pink Hoppus with the cross bones. I always wanted a hot pink Hoppus but they never made one. I may have to get that also.

Oh wow, great finds. I really want to get one!
Or, get them to make one of those Matt Skiba custom Washburn prototypes back in 2005/2006... those were awesome. Actually, his white one was auctioned off on ebay a couple months or so ago for $3.600. :|

I think I'm going to have them paint it hot pink like the Hoppus bass because I've always wanted a hot pink Delonge!
