Ran into a seller who is willing to sell a USED Ibanez GA6CE for around $160 ($250 Value atm as new).

The catch is that I don't think the seller knows a thing about guitars because he was offering a set of electrical guitar strings with it... thus I'm guessing this guitar received some poor treatment over his years of usage?

Also, now he tells me that he put some Steel Jazz strings on the guitar... and the guitar is a classical style... May explain why he says the neck is slightly curved up.

Is it too much of a risk?

I am relatively a beginner still so I clearly don't yet deserve a $200 or $300+ guitar, but this $100 discount does seem rather nice.
