I already made a checklist on what I should check when looking (in real life) at the Ultra GP I "won" on ebay but it would be appreciated if you guys would help me a bit. Especially if you would tell me some common problems found on the GP.

Do you guys see any problems (on these pics)? (apart from the dings I don't care about)

Thanks a lot,

Pictures are kinda dark so it is hard to tell.

I bet Dave or some of our other GP owners could tell you all the things to check for.

I have other hi-res pics too in my mailbox. But they're so big paint or windows don't want to open them (?!) and I can't upload them on my Photobucket. But I'll see the guitar in real life soon, so it's not a big problem.

Well, obviously the knobs are not original. Other than that, it looks legit.

There are really no problem areas to look out for on the GP, so check it like you would check any other guitar - neck, truss rod, fret wear, electronics, etc.
