you just deleted your thread and i had this huge reply written.

yeah don't bid if they have a negative or two. it's way worse over there as far as the bad sellers go. good sellers are fine though, not too much to be concerned with but.

always look for fret wear. i did get one guitar that had pretty bad wear and when i looked back, the images showed the wear in the auction. i learned from that one but it was a cheap strat that i'm still using parts off of so no harm really. but keep an eye on that as re-frets ain't cheap.

typically things do get relisted right away but on some occasions they raise the price for the next auction. odd strategy but i've seen it.

the thing i wasn't keen on with jauce was loading up a jauce account with my cash. i'd rather just pay if i win an auction than have to commit funds and have them tied up a day or two if i didn't win.

but the prices are slightly higher at rinkya, not much, maybe $20-30 higher on a $1000 buy.

i also prefer the interface with rinkya over jauce. others prefer buyee, but i've heard their packing wasn't a good. jauce and rinkya pack things really well. not had an issue there. they frigging bubble wrap the strings!

oh yeah sorry about that i remembered that you are the one that showed me the website so i though it would be better here

that was in the description:
Condition: B +
Fret remaining: 8 more percent ...??

• The truss rod: around you, but is near the limit.
• Only tone F that the work is subject specification.

pm me the auction in you want. i'll check it out. sounds odd about the truss rod being almost at the limit. but that still may not be an issue.

Anyone have any suggestions for a decent bridge humbucker? I have a Dimarzio Tone Zone in it now but its too sludgy for my preferences. I think I'd prefer something with lower gain, but a crispy, classic rockish tone.

Good suggestion. Their HyperVintage should fit the bill.

Suhr Aldrich. Bridge only, though. Don't bother buying the 'matching' neck pickup.

wow that's cool. did you get it? considering the maker, i doubt it'd have a truss rod issue.
