If you don't know the answers to those questions, why did you buy it?

Are you sure it's an ST80?

The whole purpose of out friendly little forum here is that you don't have to take the risk, or certainly you can reduce it by asking questions before you part with your hard earned cash!!

If it's a good ST-80 then that's not a bad price, if it's not that's a lot of money!

Exactly! You obviously needed to ask, or you wouldn't have posted this topic!

Imagine it wasn't the "real deal". What would you have done then? Either its 1000 euros down the drain, or you continue the fraud by trying to sell it back on ebay. Seems like a very bad risk to me.

Forum member villager has a website with a bunch of similar guitars guaranteed original for not much more:

http://www.japanguitars.co.uk/page%206%20Tokai.html

also togps usually has a few up his sleeve--click the banner above: www.tokaiguitar.de

That guitar you bought looks good, but I hope you got some kind of guarantee from the seller that it is an ST-80!

He has the pickups out so why won't he tell you whats on them..?? And also this model has the model number stamped at the end of the fret board, it is barely visible in the pics, ask him what that number is, it should be an 80.

It says in the listing Serial Number 9005238, I'm no Springy expert but isn't that totally wrong?? Kitarist, have you paid, if you paid how did you pay?

If you haven't paid I suggest you don't! unless the seller can come up with some reassurance that this is an ST80.

ebay should implent a tiny comment system so everyone can add a comment on item that he is looking at.... would be safer
