Maestro brand guitars?

I have seen these guitars popping up on Craigslist over the past month or two and was wondering if anyone else has seen, heard, or knows anything about them. I did some quick Google searches and came up with nothing.
Almost forgot, the seller says they are made in Korea.

Sub-Epiphone Gibby brand.

I've seen them at Best Buy and Target.

The few I picked up were HEAVY.

WOW....I really like going out and finding budget friendly (cheap) guitars but I might have to stay clear of this one. I was hoping that if they were made in Korea one of them might be on par with some of the Squiers I have had.

That's the least of their problems. In fact that doesn't bother me at all (we are on a Telecaster forum, after all). But I've seen two in person, and the usual insult "they looked/felt like toys" doesn't apply. There are laws about quality and safety in toys. The Maestros felt like crappy toys that you could injure yourself with. And it wouldn't surprise me if there was a choking hazard from things falling off of them.

For the record, I loves me some cheap guitars. But there is a limit.

There is a private brand of guitars named Maestro which are not affiliated with Gibson.

I had one of the SG junior models and it was decent for a cheap guitar. It intonated fine and fret ends weren't sharp which is a good thing. I found a used Epi SG Special off CL for cheap and was blown away by how light it is and the pickups so I kept it and sold the Maestro.

Maestro = those 'Starcasters' Fender sells to Target. I like cheap guitars, but even I have my limits.

X-Calibur Blade

I am aware this thread is really old, but I just found it. I was trying to find out info about DanL Guitars because I own the original prototype of the X-Calibr Blade. I bought it in Austin from the builder.
