Back to topic, i'm sure someone will help you regarding the place to buy, but i'll give you some piece of advice that's prevalent anywhere. Always bargain with the salesman, you can say that since you're buying both the guitar and case, he should give you some discount/or a new set of strings or plectrums equal to that amount of discount. Also, the things to check are the neck, the tuners, strings, sound, playability and all. Hope this helps. Please ask if you require any more help.
