Re: help buying gear

If you're paying via PayPal, you're covered up to £500 in the UK. I'd imagine you're covered for about $1000 in the USA.

Check that the seller has good feedback.

You can't write e-Bay on here, the filter blocks it. You can always post an item number if you're wondering about a specific item or guitar, though. Or if you say "the Bay", everyone will know what you're talking about anyway.

EDIT: There's 2 1527's on there right now. Neither seller has good feedback. One, in fact, has zero sales / feedback. I'm not sure whether I'd trust that seller. I guess people have to start somewhere, though. The other seller has only 2 sales. It's all a bit risky.

Ask if he's actually in China, if not it might just be legit!
