What kinds of questions should I ask the seller before deciding purchase a guitar on ebay? I am buying a guitar with floyd rose in it.

Questions I am going to ask the sellers are...

What are the conditions of the frets
How is the action of the guitar
Are there any other set up or intonation issues with the guitar?

Should I ask for a serial number so I won't end up with a fake guitar?

What else should I ask for?

The buyer has a 100 % rating on ebay but I want to take steps so I don't get ripped off.

Your intelligence - apparently you have none if you're buying a musical instrument on Ebay.

many people have been buying guitars on ebay with good results. so what the **** are you talking about? I don't have the money to buy a new guitar.

Don't listen to those guys. eBay is a great place to find guitars - I currently have 14 guitars, but I've bought & sold around 50 over the years, almost always on eBay.

So long as the seller has good feedback, has described the guitar fully & the pictures are of the actual guitar, not just stock pictures, there usually isn't anything to worry about.

It's usually worth avoiding the listings which say something along the lines of 'selling for a friend, I don't know anything' - it amazes me how many of those type of listings there are - but other than that just use some common sense and you should be fine.

Why in the world would you buy a guitar on ebay??? I want to hold the guitar and know it even works. and with ebay AND paypal taking a percent, could you even get a good deal?

I got a brand new iPod touch 4g for $100 ($230 in stores) on craiglist. Ebay is for the impatient, the best deals are found in the most unlikely spots.

why are you spreading false information? Only as a seller do you have to pay a fee to ebay and paypal.
