how to make sure you get what you buy?
hey there, I'm about to buy my first Ibanez Jem, it's a 777 VDY.
I'm from belgium and it's located in the US so I can't really check much.
in the pictures it's the real thing, what worries me is that he offered to sell it for $1,621.00 shipping included... he's not giving the serial number because "... people can use the serial to sell fakes..."
original price was 1,649.75 + shipping to belgium around $250
will i ever get this guitar once i pay, and will it be the one from the pictures?
the site i found it on is ioffer.com which has a bulk load of chibanez for sale also, which makes me even more suspicious, but than again he's selling two real jem's the VDY and a FPB among more little stuff (has a shop on there i think).
is this to be trusted? any advice is welcome.
