    Why buy from these smucks when services like Rinkya, From Japan etc exist? I don't get it...

    We're enlightened buyers, but there's plenty of other people who love Jap LPs that might not be aware of the ins-and-outs of Japanese online commerce. If these guys didn't make profit doing it (and they clearly do, given their eBay scores), you wouldn't see them. There's always a sucker out there, and it always stings less when you're under the illusion that the seller is the sucker.

    If you don't like the middleman concept, I would suggest you stop buying your food at the grocery store. With a tiny bit of research, you can go around them anyway...

    Yep that was the same one. Ended up selling through ebay. Never did find the Japan listing, if there was one.

    Not even the same situation. And the sellers on Ebay do not state that they are a middle man. They act as if the own the guitar.

    You can add tokai-shop, house-of-geek, eastislandcrew to this list; and likely manny more.

    I guess eBay doesn't give a damn as long as they are getting their fees. Reverb must be killing their musical instrument sales revenue:sadwave:
