yea, for a thing like a guitar. there are so many small things that could totally ruin your buy. Like small dents and scratches that the seller doesn't enumerate. Or a deadfret here and there. I bought a guitar from a friend once with deadfrets he didn't bother mention. so if a friend could do that to me, why couldn't a seller on ebay?
Equipment:
ESP LTD EC2005
Boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion

As long as you dont buy from China you're good. (Alot of rip fakes produced in China, not worth the hassle)

Try to get a serial number or something if you can to verify its genuine aswell or w/e.

Thanks guys. Also, what do you think is the best route to go when buying a basswood/mahagony body w/ two humbuckers. Preferably a Floyd Rose also.
i like to play all kinds of rock so i need something versatile but im also tired of strat style bodies (i could go for a superstrat one though.) Price wise, i dont have a big budget so cheap would be great too. thanks

I bought a telecaster on eBay and it's awesome, the only thing wrong was the high e strings cut out in the nut wasn't deep enough to hold the string, but it was easily fixable and not the sellers fault.

really depends on the seller, check their selling feedback rating, 95% or higher is good, anything less than that means they have a lot of transactions that've gone badly.
