    I don't think there's any way to avoid "scratches" on a Double Bass and these are in some sense inevitable...

    But I wonder if we're talking about the same thing - do you actually mean the wood has split? Or cracked?

    Anyway - $600 sounds like a huge bargain to me !! If you had said 6 thousand then you might have had a case for returning it...;)

    I would wait for opinions from some of our American friends(asleep now!), who know more about this - but I still think $600 is very cheap for any DB!!

    I'd pay $600 for that, even if I had to put another $600 in it in repairs....

    I talked with a luthier and he said he can fix it and it wont cost too much to me and he said this cracks cause a problem in 10 years or willnot cause any problem.

    I think I can buy with contentment :)
