So glad you got it safely :D

You need the patience of saints with couriers, there all the
same. Pack well and say a few prayers is all you can do.

Bought a guitar on ebay from him, everything went fine.

The added middleman cost of $95 might have a negative effect on your
bargain. Plenty of straight up deals around without that extra cost
its a buyers market at the moment after all.

Do Tokai not Plek and also CNC route their inlays eliminating the need for filler altogether, (round corners cant get a sharp corner with a drill bit I suppose) on newer guitars? Not a major concern for me, but sloppy inlay filler on a $$$ guitar should be a no no, although it can have a clinical co...

No Papal is very common on ebay.de (Germany)
They seem to prefer bank transfers.
I would calculate the fees into my price and offer Papal, its not worth losing the potential buyers, as much as I hate the idea of it.

Do'nt touch a twin too heavy too loud as said.
(being there done that)
A 2x12 will be heavy too, if you need to push air consider a head and cab.
A 1X12 combo 30 watts or so is fine
(with the highest quality speaker you can afford it makes
a huge difference) never was a fan of 10" speakers
