    My double bass teacher who now plays strictly classical music has let me borrow his Ibanez SoundGear 1000. It's about 15 years old. Anyway, he said he wants to sell it and wanted to give me first dibs. He said it was appraised at $350 last year by the insurance guy but isn't sure how accurate that it. Well, he said he would let me have it for $250. It comes with a really nice hard Ibanez case. The bass is in absolutely perfect shape, but again, it's 15 years old. Would this be a good buy or would it be better to take the $250 and buy a newer bass? Thanks!
     
  2. 250 is a good deal.

    Good enough I would pay you to ship it to me if you didn't want it. :bag:

    I'd jump on it.

    Not literally - I would definitely buy it though.

    If it's been around for 15 years and is still looking and playing great, then it's a pretty safe bet that it will last another 15 years or more if taken care of. I would buy it.

    hahaha! Well, I'm gonna buy the thing from him then. Yeah, there isn't a single ding on it and it looks new when it's cleaned. Thanks!
