Ibanez Destroyer Bass, Excellent +, 9.0, one extra strap pin and some user friendly knobs are the only changes, cool art work on the original case. We used it for our jam session at Vision studio in Atlanta the other night and it sounded wonderful but I'm having my tech put new strings and his magic touch on it this week so it will sound even better. "GREAT GUITAR"
Personal checks are fine. Out of state checks clear in a day or two now. Wire transfers will work. Sorry, no credit cards.
UPS mainly. In 30 years I've had one claim and they paid it. I don't like Fed Ex but I'll use them if you want. Don't expect them to pay a claim on a vintage guitar. Proper packing will prevent problems. You got to double box expensive guitars and amps.
I don't buy anything I wouldn't want for myself. It's very rare I'll buy something that's not 100% original, but if it has changed tuner buttons or been refretted, I'll tell you. Detailed, accurate descriptions only. I go to a lot of trouble to pack this stuff right for shipping so it will arrive undamaged. I sell only really nice amps, fully serviced, no return on amps.
