    I might not be thee best to judge, but I don't think so.

    I meant the guitar. So the guitar is genuine, but the site is fraud?

    Guitar looks good, the ad (or possibly the whole site) is dodgy

    If it looks too good to be true, it is.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Correct. It's a pic of a real PRS guitar. But good luck receiving said guitar...

    Aliexpress is the place to buy chinese knock-off guitars. I've never seen a legit one on that website.

    Thanks, friends. It`s just that my friend`s friend bought some really cheap tablets on the site an everything went ok. I`ll try to get some additional info... (regarding the brand etc.)

    Electronics are far easier to build "tolerable" versions of compared to guitars. These things are basically cardboard guitars clearcoated in hair spray.
