He broke several forum rules, was warned, then complained and broke more--so he got banned.

I'd stay clear of that one.

Well--go after the other one you found. Can't remember what you said the price was, but I remember it being a really good deal.

Re: some info on seller

yes but i checked import taxes on that one and it's a couple of 100 euro so that makes the deal a bit sour :-( (about +25% of the whole price)
guess i have to hang in there till a new deal comes around.
maybe this one http://www.ebay.de/itm/Ibanez-Jem-re...#ht_500wt_1361
but than i still wouldn't have a real jem!

Many people won't give out the full serial number anymore. We just had a thread about it not long ago.

There are good reasons not to give it out to any 'ol tire-kicker.
But, if a deal seems immenent--the seller "may" provide it.

A serial number is not the guarantee that it's the real deal. You have to know what to look for. When properly educated on the differences between real and counterfeit-you don't need the serial number for verification.
Hell, most of the fakes have an "F" serial now, and you'd never know if it's legit by just the number.

Look at the guitar!
If you know what to look for, you don't need the number.

Ahhhhh--I see. I thought you meant the serial number.
Not used to seeing IBAN number. We call it a routing number over here.

Yeah--If he doesn't take PayPal and won't give his bank info, how did he expect to get paid? Did he mention that?
Where did you see the guitar listed, anyway?
