  2. Well for one thing I don't think it will continue to gain value per say...

    That's true, but that is the one and only negative thing I can think of about that deal. Those old Dyna-basses have a killer reputation, and if the condition is actually as good as the seller claims, it's a very decent price, which you could probably make back without much difficulty if you don't like the bass.
     
  4. A lot of people say that the Dynabasses are awesome basses and I believe it. The Foundation is the passive version of the Dynabass and they're great too.

    Dynabasses are great; $300 for a fiver in good condition with a case and a practice amp is a great deal.

    Buying a bass without trying it? Can you actually do that?

    Don't know if it will gain in value, but that seems like a sweet deal. Those basses have a great reputation , even if they don't command premium prices.

    If you keep it in that same condition, I can't see it ever depreciating any more, so you shouldn't lose.

    If I wanted a 5'er I'd grab that one.

    Well, sure. Was that a serious question? Besides, the website he linked was Craigslist, which is mostly used for local transactions, so if he's local to it then he can easily try it before buying.
