I was looking for a new epiphone and found this:

I am not sure whether to go for it as it looks too good to be true. Have any of you bought a guitar from amazon marketplace and do you think i should ?

there should be a decent guitar store around where you live that stocks the epiphone standard for the same price
The price is in pounds though.. seems fairly normal right?

253 British pounds = 417.45 U.S. dollars

That is according to Google. I got an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus for a little more than that off of Ebay, so it seems legit enough to me. E-mail the seller and ask questions if you're really interested. Good sellers will get back to you quickly and respond to your questions in detail.

Well amazon marketplace is kinda like ebay. People selling their stuff. Not much else to say about it, just go for it.
