    just as a heads up, all these sellers do not own the guitars they are selling, they are available elsewhere at a far lower price.. please add to the list as and when..

    • tmg-jp
    • solanokanata
    • catchthewavejapan
    • nin-japan-net
    • japancolors
    • japanheart
    • superpricejapan
    • ryoyaaa98
    • tricraft-guitars
    • tokyo_creators_music
    • superbanjoman
    • tokai-shop
    • house-of-geek
    • eastislandcrew

    these are a few, some of them are selling the same guitar!!

    These are the guys that make themselves middle men, correct? Buying from somewhere after you pay them more for it, correct?

    OOC, does anyone know, what happens if someone buys from them, and before they can buy it from the real/original seller, it gets sold to someone else?

    I do know that some of these sellers state in their listing that the guitar is listed elsewhere and could be sold before the Ebay listing is updated

    they even make more $$ if somebody buys it overpriced from one of those brokers, so I guess they don't care

    Two of the guitars I am watching are/were listed by 2 of the Ebay sellers that the OP listed.

    I would be ok with it if the seller would clearly state that they dont have the actual item in their possession. I think (if I am reading the Ebay rules correctly.) that they must state this.

    So you need to find the real owner to get it at a fair price :lol:

    The Greco SG I was showing above is listed somewhere for ~ half the price

    This one is listed elsewhere for cheaper.

    Crews Maniac Sound K T KTR Std Modify 2010s Used

    The other one has expired but I am working a deal that after shipping and all, doesnt make the Ebay seller much money.

    Guessing the same person owns many of these ebay names??? I think it was tmg-jp that has/had a note in his profile that nasty emails will get you banned from doing business with him lol.

    It looks like Deep Kashi can be added to the list.

    I'm having a hard time understanding how you can list something on eBay that's not currently in your possession. :hmm:

    Bit light on ethics. And light policing by eBay.

    I advised Reverb of a seller who was reselling other's guitars - usually store inventory from guitar planet and Ishibashi

    They took care of it to their credit

    I bought A guitar from Batfuk I am very happy with

    It was actually a junker he bought from yahoo Japan iirc and Haruld recognised it

    Batfuk fixed it up and sold it for a fair price and did a good job of getting it fixed

    I think it's more fair to say some of these sellers sell SOME guitars they don't own but may also be selling others they do own
