Tips for a good online buying experience
Practice good communications. Never assume anything. Ask for a detailed, in-hand description of all parts, including electronics, finish, fretwear, hardware, case, etc.

Spell out the deal, including amount, method of payment, shipping method, approval period, etc.

Mint Condition: Condition the instrument was in when it left the factory. Very rare in older instruments.
