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.
Find out what’s original and what’s not.
Spell out the deal, including amount, method of payment, shipping method, approval period, etc.
Keep all correspondence and receipts.
Condition definitions vary greatly; we suggest the use of the following:
Mint Condition: Condition the instrument was in when it left the factory. Very rare in older instruments.
