So I won the bid on this TS-2 truing stand for $125. Shipping was another $50, so I'm into this thing for $175. It was advertised on ebay as NIB by a seller with 99.8% positive feedback and 650 feedback responses. Below I have linked to pics I took of it within an hour of it arriving at my house and taking it out of the box. The pics are kind of large, so those of you with dial-up have been warned. The stand doesn't look used, but it seems that it was probably stored for a while in a damp environment. Unfortunately, many of the fasteners, joints, and rubbing parts are corroded/rusted. So, does it fit the definition of "New in Box" because it is "unused" and in the original box? Obviously it is not in "New" condition, but it is probably unused. I have contacted the seller and she deciding what to do about it. I have also sent her these pics, but she has yet to respond to them.
For those of you with more ebay experience than I: if she does not cooperate, can I perform a chargeback? What if I contact Paypal? Any insight you guys can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
