    Just from looking at photos of it, it's not something I would ever consider buying. Looks like it's not set up at all (figure at least $350), and the case and bag I'm not quite sure about. Plus you'd probably want some type of finish put on it. A good set of strings will run you $150-200. So, even for the price it's listed at, expect at least $500-700 more for setup, strings, and finishing. Plus the bow it comes with probably isn't so great. Good bows start around $300 and go up from there. Altogether you'll end up paying at least $1600-1800, which, for even less, you could get a fully set up Shen SB80 (runs $1450) with good strings.
