So what do you guys think about buying guitars on Ebay? Is it a bad idea because you've never played it before. Because a very nice guitar has caught my eye and its cheap for the type. I'd really love to buy it but I'm very worried. Its about 25 years old too... so... yeah. The guy says it still plays very well and he has 15 good reviews. None bad.

NOOO sorry lol... I mean can't I get a warning for posting a link to something on Ebay selling. Once this guy got in trouble because they thought he was trying to sell it or something. But here it is.

It's bad unless if the guitar looks really good and you're sure of the purchase.

And if the guitar is rare. A good example is a MIJ Fender Jaguar. I really can't find them from anywhere else near.

Under the bid price it says "reserve not met." That means that the seller has set a reserve so that it won't sell unless someone bids higher than the price he has set. He probably has it set at around $1000, so if you were thinking you were going to get that guitar for 100 bucks, think again.

I'm sure the seller is genuine, there is nothing to suggest that he is trying to scam you or anything, it just that he probably wont sell for less than 1000
