    I just got a '95 englehardt EM1, a case and a bow for $300.

    The stick of the bow is crap,(cracked) but the frog is nice (ebony?) and the fittings are silver/mother of pearl.

    I am so happy, the only downside is that it is sorely in need of a setup (Fingerboard dressing, nut filing, new bridge, soundpost adjustment, etc) So ironically, I am going to spend about one hundred more ($400) getting it set up than what I spent for it.

    Sounds like a great deal. A ply bass up-to-snuff for $700 is wholesale!
