Most of them are fine. Japanese sellers tend to eer on the side of caution when describing guitars. If there's a nick, scratch, ding... sometimes things you wouldn't even notice, they'll tell you about it. I'd prefer to go through a store than via auction but there's always bargains to be had on yahoo japan. I use digimart.net with the google chrome google translate plugin with success. It's just a case of contacting the seller directly (i.e. facebook or email).
