Iwas looking through E-Bay and was impressed with the selection of guitars. Question is to  anyone who has ever purchased a guitar on E-bay. Since you obviously cant try it out before you buy it. What happens if you don't like it after you receive it. I am a bit leary about purchasing a guitar and not having a chance to play it first.

there was a local band that I used to really love to go see when I lived on Cape Cod. I always thought that they had the perfect name.....THE INCREDIBLE CASUALS

I beleive being able to sing is a true gift. if you have the ability to sing you could actually get by with two chords and be quite the entertainer. one could be a very good guitar player and be at a party and without any vocals there is really no show. the good news is that with practice ones voice will improve. I dont have a very good voice but through years of practice I can sing certain songs. I have no dought that withe proper training and exesizes most people can develop their own style. I once heard both Bruce Spingstrrn and John Mellenchamp were kicked out of bands, being told they could not sing. hey look at Bob Dylan
