ebay has like buyer protection and stuff but forum's dont. so how do i buy a guitar from someone on the forums and make sure i am not going to get ripped off once they have my money?

Get references and talk with them a bit beforehand to make sure it's legit. The first few deals I did online I got their phone numbers and talked with them a bit before I sent money. Most legit sellers are happy to do whatever to make you comfortable.
