Hi everyone, just joined up because i just bought a 555 (i know most of you probably consider real 555's fake jems anyway but let's put that aside for now) on that auction site. Then i just got paranoid about the fake possibility because nobody else bid on it (even though there was interest, there were 5 or so questions).
The item number is: 330149692553
Things that make me think i'm just being paranoid;
-The price isn't low or anything, a new 555 costs £665 at my usual guitar shop
-It isn't coming from china, in fact it's from here in the UK, about 50 miles from me
-He's said OK to local pickup
-The description seems legit
-He hasn't shyed away from close up photos showing some detail (for example DiMarzio engraved on the pickups, would a fake have this much detail?)
Anyway you guys are the experts, could you let me know (i haven't paid him yet)?
