Hi everyone. I found an Ibanez S470DXQM on eBay 500 US dollars. Nobody has bidded on it yet but I can buy it now for 600 + 25 dollars shipping. It also comes with Joe Satriani Dimarzio pickups. Is this a steal for a S470? The DXQM sells for 650 dollars new on musiciansfriend.com but I'm kind of skeptical because its used and its from eBay. He also said it cost him 275 dollars to install the pickups.

if its what you want it sounds like a good deal. 275 to install pickups?! i hope he is including the cost of the pickups as well or else he was ripped off big time.

Nice one. BIN it, I don't believe it'll last.

So, I'm really skeptical about buying stuff on eBay. Can some of you eBay pros read around and check to see if he's actually selling a guitar and not some copy?

Oh, and another question. It's been 2 days since he put up the auction and nobody has bidded on it. Do people usually wait till the end to bid on it? Should I wait and bid low or BIN?

The guitar in the pics is a genuine article, and the pickups look right (both Fred and PAF Joe have hex polepieces). The seller has been an ebay member for 9 years, and has great feedback. I'm pretty certain that if you buy it, you'll get exactly what's described.

People might be holding out to buy at the lowest price - it's only been up for a couple days and already has 330+ views - means it's a pretty popular item. If you BIN it, you're safe - and you'll be getting it for less than new retail price, with the dimarzios thrown in. If you don't BIN, someone else might, plus it's possible that when someone places a bid, the BIN option will go away, and it'll sell for higher than $600 in last-minute bidding. My S470 with EMGs sold for $750 like that, and it wasn't even a DXQM.
