Excellent deal if it's in good condition. I'd buy it. the bass is very Fenderish in sound and has received some good favorable reviews. Hard to find this particular model too, it was only made for a couple of years. If you think about it, the budget Yamaha bass RBX170 sells for $179.99. The BB1500A is a much better bass in quality (it retailed for around $700 if I remember correctly), so a price of $200-250 is great.
