Safe buying tips.
Stratoblogster's eBay Amp Finder is a consolidated directory of Guitar Amplifier searches on Ebay. Results sort from highest price down, so you don't have to wade thru t-shirts, misc parts, amp covers and cheesy lower end stuff.
eBay shopping can be safe and low risk when you only deal with long time high rated sellers. We especially recommend dealing with eBay Stores merchants. eBay Stores are very safe, and their customer rank/ratings/history are always posted for your inspection. Any seller with high history and rating stats is preferred.
If you're not into auctions, look for "Buy It Now!" listings-- many of these are posted by established gear dealers as opposed to private sellers.
