My current rental violin right now is about $670 right now, it's a normal student Eastman VL80-5(whatever that mean, I just copy down the receipt).The one on Craiglist is near my home so I can go and check it out, they're(the people that selling it) are pricing it at $500 but are willing to negotiate.
Here's the link: http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/msg/2941351772.html
I know that there's no way I can tell how it will sound, but if I can bargain it down to $300-$400-ish, then I think I can restore it with the remain hundred or so and would still cost less than my rental and could possibly even sound better.
Oh, and another thing
how much do you think the restoration for this violin would cost??
Any advice is welcome:D
