This is an 1/4 size engelhardt m3 bass(fully plywood) that I got used when I was younger and first learning the instrument. It's in good condition, very sturdy and no problems that I know of, with a few scratches(main ones shown in pictures) and dings as would be expected after years of use by a kid. It is a very good starting instrument(much better quality then a cheap Chinese instrument you could get on Amazon or eBay) and would be great for a young kid to learn on. It could benefit from a setup with a luthier, but it isn't necessary. Please contact me with any questions about the bass that you might have. I'm listing this at 800 which I think is a fair price considering a new one would cost around 1200 dollars but please feel free to give me your best offer.
