    I’m simply it’s caretaker! The quilting reminds me of stormy Jupiter! Wrong color though.

    Well... slightly disappointed. It’s condition is very good but not as described. Mind you I am very critical/picky. Not original trem pup screws and some serious clear coat scratches that cannot be polished out around the cavity (assuming a pup swap and replace at some point). A couple small sings in top and rear, plus some scuffing on rear bottom. Small chip in binding. I sent the seller a note and some photos... he offered me $50 back. Somewhat insulting. Nice looking 5 footer tho...

    Man, that is pretty nice from the photo. But, yeah, I HATE sellers that don't disclose the true condition. There's no way it can work out well. If I were you, I'd tell him you want 20% back or he can have his guitar AND negative feedback. (but it does look damn sweet, and now you won't have to worry about getting that first scratch/ding).

    Thanks Jeff.

    I thought the same thing... countered his $50 with $200. He re-countered at $100, so I told him to send me a call tag. Now he’s up to $150. At some point, I’d sell it. No way I could ask what I paid for it in current market.

    That sucks. Looks great in the photo, though. I'm still trying to figure out issues with one that was listed in excellent condition, but arrived with fret dents and in need of a nut buildup. I still have a 7th fret G buzz on it that I haven't been able to get rid of. Just be honest about what you've got, and it saves problems for everyone. No one's going to pay that kind of money for a guitar and shrug it off when it's not as advertised.

    Man, I love that pink on any guitar. I wish EBMM would offer it on some others.

    Also, totally agree with @dibart77. Not sure why folks aren't upfront with condition.

    I've never understood why people misrepresent their items. Just be honest, save some time, some heartache, and some bad feelings/feedback. It may "cost" you a few $, but you'll sleep better. That's a beautiful guitar though. Hope you get it all sorted out.

    It’s sorted enough that I’m keeping it. Seller sent me $200 back... so I can either work out the imperfections or sell it at a later date w/out losing my rear end on it.

    So it’s been a couple weeks. I must say despite the cosmetic imperfections... this one is every bit of magic my other Tribute is! All set up!

    I’m going to order some replacement parts... new, correct screws for the pups, new pup dressing tape, the wee little screw for the clip height adjustment of the trem bar (mia).

    Time to make some room in the cabinet, ladies n gents!
