I know it is a very hard question to awnser without seeing, but I just want to know if I am wasting my time and money. I'm gona go look at it this weekend. What exactly should I look for? Thanks Heres the add. i have an Engelhart EM-1 for sale for $350. there's a small seperation where the neck is glued to the body, but it's an easy and inexpensive fix, plus they'll usually set it up for you how you want it when they fix it. i'd have it done myself before i sold it, but i'm way too lazy, and the seperation doesn't affect the sound at all. this thing has years before it would need to be fixed, unless you totally beat the crap out of it.
