I recently sold my Gibson SG Standard on eBay. It was shipped at auction end (last Wednesday) and the buyer got the guitar last Friday morning. Last night he filed a complaint against me on PayPal saying the guitar was 'significantly different' that how I had described is. First off, I described the guitar as 'very good condition' and 'USED' and said there were several small marks, which couldn't be photographed. I then went on to make a quip about how I've seen certain stores pass off guitars in similar condition as new, but for the purpose full disclosure I again reiterated that the guitar was not 100%, but added it wasn't far off. I also stated the guitar has never been gigged, which is 100% true. Before the auction finished the buyer called me and I described the marking on the guitar as best as I could. I pointed out that there was some buckle rash on the back of the guitar and also that the scratch plate was scratched, but again that I was unable to photograph this. He asked me if the guitar was in really good condition and I answer that it was, but that it was a used guitar I added that I looked after my guitars (I do). At that time he negotiated a $50 reduction in price and free shipping (shipping cost me $20). He paid $900 (new retail is $1649). He's now come back to me via PayPal asking for a further $100 off the guitar. Here's what his claim says: I add that he misquoted me, what I did say was nothing more than you'd find being sold for new at certain guitar stores. I recognize now that trying to be humorous was not a good idea, but the fact we discussed that very issue before he bought the guitar again makes me feel a little better about that. Anyway my original post is at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESOX:IT&item=290300648299 I was aware of the two marks he talks about on the back edge, didn't get them to photograph. However I am not aware of the mark on the lower front. My initial thought is that he is suffering a bit of buyer remorse. Why else would he wait a week before filing a claim? As some of you may know the SG has a transparent nitro finish so all you have to do is look at it and it marks. I certainly am happy that I did my best to represent the guitar accurately. Anyway, in order to get this put to be I've gone back and offered him a further $50 off the guitar and I'm awaiting his reply. I'm not really wanting to take the guitar back, but I've also not done a PayPal dispute before, but I've heard these days that they take the buyers side of things. Anyway, what do folks out there think about the situation I find myself in? Thanks in advance!
