CHEAPEST JEM IN THE WORLD NOW!!!

There is this guitar for sale:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ibanez-Jem...item460710c6e2

No photos of guitar. I messaged the seller and this is the kind of response i got:

Me: What is the serial number?
Seller: I will check for you.
Me: Is there any parts missing or is everything as should be?
Seller: All in good nick, no parts missing.
Me: When will you be able to get back to me with the serial?
Seller: If you don't want it, don't buy it. It is not with me at the minute, stored safely. If it does not say stuff in the ad then it is not part of the deal, use your loaf.
Me: I need to know what the serial number as it says when it was built, the same as asking for the licence plate on the car. How soon would I be able to collect this?
Seller: Paypal only, safe bet. Sorry I dont trust you with your feedback:


The seller has 0 feedback and no photos and says needs money fast as wife has kicked him out and needs deposit for flat.
I have 1970 feedback!

Anyone willing to bid? Can someone ask the same question for me to this guy? See what answer you get???

What Jamm'n Jimmy says. Almost certainly a scam. Stay clear.

Re: CHEAPEST JEM IN THE WORLD NOW!!!

Box of rocks? Oh boy! Rocks with EMGS!

My initial thoughts are too good to be true someone auctioning 200 quid for me to go in last minute with £700GBP and snag a bargain but

1. No sane person would open up at 200 quid
2. Noone would buy someone ab rand new Jem7VWH as a gift not knowing if someone will like it
3. No wife would buy her husband "another guitar" and lets face it.. nobody begins their guitarist life by walking into a store and seeing a JEM7VWH listed at 2000 of whatever currency and thinking... yup. that is me and im gonna be famous too!

Re: CHEAPEST JEM IN THE WORLD NOW!!!

The guy has now piped back and said "F1200569 is the serial number. If you want to make offers then please join the auction. Money is not really an object. This is genuine. Will go to the highest bidder. I respect your honesty"

he says after i told him if he is scamming i expect no answer or if he is he will pipe up with the serial.

However i have not even seen 12s from anybody let alone random selling privately.

If I remember right the F mean Japanese and 12 means it is 2012 and the last 5 digits are the factory number count. Still seems like a scam

I wouldn't bid $1 unless I saw pictures of the actual guitar with his ID in the shot.

THIS!
Always ask for pics like this when in doubt.
Give him your email and ask him to send pics.
Then--post them here.
