Precisely -- the ol' Les Paul setup.
If the case is the Vantage hardshell case, 200 is a steal. In any case, if the bass checks out to your satisfaction, that's a fair price, IMO.
Only downsides are: it might be neck-divey and I think it's a 3-point bridge—can't adjust individual string height.
I worked in a shop that sold tons of Vantages of this vintage (late 70s, early 80s). They were good values. There's a Vantage bass that's a step up from this one that I wouldn't say no to—I like to call it a poor man's Alembic.
