Has anyone managed to shop through Buyee? I have signed up and after finding a guitar I purchased some points, but was outbid and now I cannot seem to find anything I like, It also seems they don't want to ship guitars containing Mahogany or ebony, making the choices for a Les Paul or a superstrat really hard. At this point, I'm thinking to just buy a fender I can sell. It seems there were a lot more guitars like ESP's before, now I can hardly find any. Isn't Yahoo Auction a good place to find used guitars?
I was looking for an ESP KH bolt-on but there are hardly any ESP's out there, just Edwards and Grassroots, a lot of Grassroots

My 2cents - I have used most of the services since I started doing it 15 years ago. Buyee is my least favorite. They have a nasty habit of sometimes putting your guitar in whatever enormous box is lying around and then expecting you to pay 100's of dollars in shipping. I like Rinkya best. Best boxes and packing material and $40 fee if its 40,000 yen or more. and unlike Jauce you don't pay until you win the auction.

Don't use buyee unless you have a backup plan.

They are randomly refusing to ship guitars. Then you have to figure out how to get it out of japan.
