Sojing electric violin?

Instruments: I need advice on buying a Sojing 2nd-hand electric violin

From Timothy James Dimacali

Hi everyone!

Is the Sojing brand of electric violins any good? I found a second-hand blue one that's selling for just around US$100.

I have my suspicions, but I'm thinking that I might be able to have it adjusted later on by a luthier.

What's the quality of the sound and workmanship of this brand? Will it last?

And when I test the actual thing, what details should I look out for or pay close attention to?

Thanks! :-)
