Ok, I want to buy a guitar in Edinburgh (and I'm in Bristol) and the guy is gonna send it in a padded soft case.

He wants me to pay by paypal, cause he thinks it's more secure than posting cash. Is this is a good idea, and if I pay, and he doesen't send the item, will I get my money back or something? I dunno, I just want to be safe?
Gear:

Vintage VS6 (Wine Red)

Marshall VS100 Valvestate head with 4x12 angled cab

Squier Strat (Fiesta Red) 90's, Korean

Yeah, I use PayPal all the time. Works great. If you don't get the item, you can submit a form to PayPal, and they'll give you back your money.
