Just spotted a great guitar deal on Zikinf.com (french ad website). The advertisement has a small description about the guitar and a photo. The seller states the guitar is left-over stock from a closed shop. I notice the same seller has other guitars listed with similar reason for selling.

I've emailed the seller and asked him for more pictures and he will apparently send me them on Monday.

Any advice on what questions to ask to try confirm/authenticate the seller etc?

A good guitarist is one who questions himself, is critical of his abilities and is modest towards other peoples abilities and techniques.

Anyone els is from America.
