Hello everyone, how are you doing?

Does anyone knows this seller? Would you guys buy this? Im looking for a pen of the same brand and model but with the music nib, any suggestion for where to buy? (I prefer to have a pre-owned one)

He scored 100% positive feedback on 1466 items so it should be OK. Also the price seems right ... I bought a 3776 from Japan for $100 including shipping ...

I bought mine from them. Arrived promptly and brand new, as described. No idea whether they have the music nib or not, but usually it adds some to the price tag.

I think a music nib on this pen is more expensive.  If you wanted a new one you can look at engeika.com or pisuke2005 on ebay. (no affiliations). Don't know about pre-owned ones though.....

Very good feedback, and the price looks good, I'd buy from them myself.

The price is probably reflective of recent cratering of yen against dollar. Yen dropped about 10% against dollar since mid-October.

I have bought from this dealer before without problems. Obtaining the music nib may be more of a problem. It is my understanding that the music was originally available only on the black 3776, but now is available on the Chartres Blue and the Burgogne 3776s.

I didn't know the yen dropped. Maybe I'll have to pick up a 3776 with a music nib, then all my drawing needs are met!

I received mine a few days ago. It looks to be slightly used. It writes well and is not damaged in any so for the price I'm okay with it but I wish they would mention this in the add.

I ordered one on the Jan. 10, they provided tracking info the next day and it's been languishing in NY for the last week.

The auction states the pen is guaranteed to be authentic and new; what makes you think the pen is used? And have you considered asking for a partial refund?

Based on their feedback I don't anticipate any issues but if I think my pen is used I'll have to decide how to proceed. OTOH, if the pen is pristine I got a good deal even if it is used so ...

Update:  my pen arrived today and it seems to me to be new/unused.  It's a beauty and writes well OOTB. The only "issue" is that the nib wasn't fully installed; it needed to be pushed into the section a bit to seat fully.  A great deal, IMO.

Sorry about the delay. The pen has clearly been handled quite a bit and you (or rather I) can tell when a feed has never been inked or rinsed. I wouldn't be surprised if mine was used as a tester in a store. No big deal, there's nothing wrong with it.

I think these are new, but sometimes former display stock. Still should work flawlessly and great for the price.

I like the Chartres Blue so much that I'm eyeing the Nice. That's one pretty pen and they have a good price.
