I just received a Les Paul R7 I won on eBay. The seller said it was a 2007 model. The serial # checks out to be a 2000. He also said the frets were excellent and they are really pited in the first few frets. Also in his listing he stated, no cosmetic damage, excellent set-up. I know set up is arguable, but the strings are rusty and the truss rod is in need of a tweaking. But he said, "no cosmetic damage." The back of the guitar is riddled with buckle rash. Problem is he had a no return as part of his listing. I know eBay offers some sort of protection. Do you think I'm covered? I've never had such a crappy deal on a guitar.
