I am considering buying a Roth upright. The cat who is selling it is asking $1500. The badge inside the F-hole says "Roth (Made in USA) catalog no. G-667 Serial no. D-79. Can anyone hep me out with some info? I'm guessing it's a german shop bass assembled in USA... or something like that. I'd love to know what era it was made, if possible. And what do you all think about the price? The bass has been through some things. There is a significant crack in the neck that has been repaired. Thanks!
