Does "Mint Condition" or "NIB" or anything like that really mean anything anymore?
people who say "like new" or "mint condition" are usually asking 10% off street price...hardly a good used price. i don't care how "nice" something is...if i'm paying almost retail, i want a warranty & the opportunity to return it.
otherwise, i'm gonna look for something at a decent used price.
I bought an Ibanez S off of craigslist couple of years back, it was listed as "mint condition". When I saw it it had scratches everywhere, someone dropped it on the strap button which cracked part of the paint and pushed the button into the wood. It was missing parts, but overall it was worth the asking price ($100).
It's like people lost sight of what "mint" means, so I take those terms with a grain of salt.
