I saw the ad, called La Vida Strings and talked to Eric, who set the bass up. He said it is Romanian and is, in his words, "a lemon." Said it took a lot of work to get it playing as it does now, and that it still was sub-par. Heck of a straight-up guy. If you played it and liked it, I'd get a second opinion. And if you still like it, I'd take Eric's judgment into account when making your offer.
