Les Paul deals on eBay

eBay can be a great place to pick up a bargain Les Paul, but make sure you do your homework first

There's no doubt that if you are looking for a second-hand, refurbished, or discounted Les Paul, eBay is a great place to look. But there are a few guidelines you should follow.

First of all, if deal looks like it's too good to be true, it probably is. eBay is a huge marketplace and ridiculously low prices are rare. So, look carefully at the photographs, read the description. Read it again. Is there anything missing? If so, ask the seller for the information before you bid. 

Next, ask for the serial number if it's not in the listing, and check it here or if it's an Epiphone Les Paul, check here

Read the seller's feedback.

Finally, if you can, go and see the guitar and ask to play it before you buy. If that's not possible, maybe you could find a friend or family member who can do it for you? If it's very expensive, you could even arrange for a guitar tech local to the seller to check it out and let you know what he thinks.
