I did ask before. They said it was all original and in good working condition. Now I've gone back to them he's said he hasnt played it in 5 years but was working last he did... What the hell..lol......sorry but you got hosed at 3K
$1800 guitar at best....you should ask those questions BEFORE buying.
Seller will not go for that price difference I will tell you to return it, I suggest you do so.
I'm sorry but this made me spit up my coffee............... He must of had it boxed and ready to ship 5 years ago and forgot it wasn't all original.........I did ask before. They said it was all original and in good working condition. Now I've gone back to them he's said he hasnt played it in 5 years but was working last he did... What the hell..
Yes, i do agree with you, the seller doesn't sound like a type i'd ever want to do business with, and he should have been upfront about all the stuff you mention. Bastard!! ... the seller, that isI didnt say they were selling at £3000 just that's what they are being listed as but they all seem to sit forever. Unfortunately can't really tell how it sounds or plays like at the moment until i get it working properly. Dirty pots I would expect but also expect the guitar to be fully functional when listed as such. The bridge is intermittent and can't get the switch to stay in the neck position to try it. Think the tone pots are none effective as well. Stuck at work at the moment though. Making sure it's all original isn't exactly my priority it's just getting what was described. Honesty goes a long way. It's had one owner and he says he knows the guitar inside out so was no reason he couldn't have documented it properly.
Yep.You US guys throwing around discount prices that we only can dream of over here - it's friggin' Europe - older Gibsons are more expensive over here, simply because they are more rare. Live with it. We have to...
(Sorry, but i am getting so tired of US people talking loooow Gibson prices as if they were the same all over the world - they are not.)
Just the VAT on a US 2000$ guitar is ~500$, include shipping, add age and rarity factor, and well...
If you got a guitar that normally goes for 3000£ (your words) at an 700£ lower price, don't whinge to loudly...
