Please Help, should I buy this?

Hey Jemsite, saw this on a local craiglist type site today;

http://www.usedvictoria.com/classifi...uitar_11510553

Was wondering If I should offer him 1100 for it. If he accepts should I buy it? I have been interested in a parker fly for awhile, but they have been too expensive for me. Is this a good deal, are they good guitars? Thanks!

If you don't know if you should buy it is because you shouldn't.
Strangers can't help you with personal decisions,it'd be better you asking to relatives or friends.....wait......no.......you should know it and not other people

Are they good guitars? Yes.

Do they have their own set of problems as per any makers guitars? Yes.

Should you trust them to be flawless based on a name? No.

Does the seller seem to know anything about the guitar? No.

Does that mean its been well cared for? Absolutely NOT! It could be perfectly fine and never played, but honestly, I'd be suspicious of any 2500 guitar going for half that price whose owner didn't know what they had and how to maintain it.

I think you are missing the point of the question 6fingers. The OP wants a Fly, but is trying to work out if the price sounds about right for that particular model.
