: : I'm a newbie to doublebass and have an offer for an 7/8 Johann Wilfer 1977 model with spruce top, maple sides & back and piezo system. The seller asks US$ 2770 for it. Is this a fair price?
: Yes, if it is in good shape (I'm assuming this is carved and not laminated). Get a good player, or preferrably your teacher, to play it and evaluate it. A modern Wilfer usually sells 4-6k from what I've seen.
Thanks for the advice Monte ! I bought the bass.
