Ah yes, you have a condition that many guys live with and are affected by everyday. It's called a penis.

Ebay/Paypal is really good about protecting from scamming.

See if you can find a 5150 in your area so you can just pick it up.

I just bought a Peavey Classic 50 off of ebay; it works fine and dandy.

I bought my amp off the internet, not from eBay, but from a similar site. I tried amp first though, and picked it up myself. The guy who was selling actually lived like 500 yards away.
But yeah, try to find a seller in your area, so you can do the transaction in person, that way you wont have to worry.

He lives in Mesa. That's where Jimmy Eat World is from.

That means I trust him

I picked up my Epi LP from eBay, a damn fine purchase.

always check out the sellers feedback. I wouldn't buy any high priced item from somone who hasn't ever sold on there before, or doesn't have a ton of positive feedback.

Haha, nice, you're the first one to actually know that!

I can't remember who, but one of them owns Milano's music here now.

Use Paypal they have scam insurance up to 2000 dollars so you should be good. Also only buy from someone with really good feedback.
