Hi all, complete newbie here so I apologize if this has already been covered and/or I step on toes/break the rules - it is not intentional. In any case, I've been keeping my eyes open for an affordable, entry-level UB for my girlfriend (she dreams of playing UB with some of our local musician friends; most likely bluegrass/alt country stuff). I found a local female musician who is asking $900 (US) for a Strunal of unknown model...this girl is a highly-educated musician who (according to her) has been playing this bass and enjoying it. I'm going to check it out tonight (hopefully) but, beyond just checking out basic stuff such as the integrity of the wood, etc I'm not really sure what to look for...I also have no way of knowing what model Strunal this bass is. Does anyone have thoughts/input on what to look for, how much to offer, etc? Any opinions, etc that you all throw in my direction will be appreciated - thanks!
