That's it in a nutshell. Two weeks ago I bought a partscaster- the seller used all kinds of weasel words to describe it- "I think the pickups are Duncan antiquities, I'm pretty sure the neck is a Warmoth," etc. It played nice though, so I made him an offer based on it being a well done partscaster made of imported parts. He hemmed and hawed, but took the money. 30 minutes later I had it on the bench, and whaddaya know- he was telling the truth. Not only that, but it had a $100 Staytrem bridge he hadn't even mentioned. I almost felt bad for lowballing him, but it'd only taken me a couple of minutes to disassemble the guitar to check what was under the hood- if he'd done the same, he could have included pictures in his ad and I wouldn't have lowballed in the first place. A week later I get a text that his buddy that built the guitar for him wanted to buy it back for more than I'd paid. I wasn't interested in selling, so I never responded.
