I'm still seeking the elusive good quality beginner/intermediate bass that I'll be proud to own/play. Of course I know that I'll need to play it, have it inspected by a luthier, get a good teacher, etc., etc. but I wanted feedback from you more knowledgeable players about whether or not its worth it to consider this bass. I'll have to travel quite far to inspect it personally so before I waste the airfare, room, etc. can you tell me what you think? Here's the description and a photo: "1963 Hofner German-made. Beautiful. Plays very easily. No flaws. Recently set up with adjustible bridge and soundpost adjustment. No chips on any edge. Like new condition. Before you get that Kay, you should check this one out. Ebony fingerboard. Laminate bass with original laquer finish. 41/5 inch string length."
