"All buy my goods, be able to be certain to let you receive quick best of item"

Can't go wrong with that.

Which also translates to, " everyone sends me the money and I stay here safe in China, where you can't get me."

If it sounds too good to be true......
But does anyone know if the guitar pictured is still in the hands of the owner who took the pic?

If I am not mistaken that guitar actually belongs to a member here. I remember reading about the Blues for Allah inlay.

Well, I pulled the trigger... the site does hold the $$ in escrow and won't pay the seller until I am satisfied, and I used Paypal... I have never been shut out of getting my money back from paypal on a deal gone sour... anyway, just got shipping confirmation w/ tracking # today... should be here in 8-10 days so we'll see.

I'll be sure to post pics when whatever arrives does finally arrive.

will either end up being the deal of the century, or I'll have paypal refund my $$.

Why risk 10-20% of the potential value of the axe? When it's not really a risk at all considering the paypal protection?

I don't do a whole lot of investing, but I do a little, and any investment with nothing to lose and a potential 500%+ return in 2 weeks time is really a no brainer.

Ya , I mean it's only 350 with protections in place , but i feel like that might be just a false sense of security..but I suppose it wouldn't kill even if the deal went sour..., but I'm sure Madoff told his clients of great earnings potential with nothing too lose ! And btw , do yourself a favor and have someone else invest for you, because that kind of mentality about risk/reward will bite you in the ass. That premise is severely flawed..but i don't wanna talk about money at the dinner table here...

In the mean time , wouldn't that actually be killer if somehow it was a legit sale and you ended up with a sweet axe!!! Keep us posted and good luck !!

Its not that you won't get a guitar, it just may not look "exactly" like it does in the photo. You will get a guitar I am sure, but looking exactly like a Troy post with Shark's inlays, I doubt it. If you do I will be the first to eat crow shit I guess... Be sure to let us know and post some pics!

After looking at the "Liger", from phredinstruments, posted about in the Guitar build and mod forum, and discovering it's manufactured in China, at right about the $500 price point, I'm beginning to wonder if the Guitar I'm getting fro Tradetang is one of those that was maybe spirited away from their local Liger factory..... Again, we shall see!
