This makes buying unseen without playing the instrument somewhat of a gamble;particularly so if there is damage ,as in this case ,since then it is difficult to sell it again if the sound does not suit or is nothing special.
Another very important point is the action height and the amount of adjustment available at the saddle
You're absolutely right, mordent, buying something unseen/untouched is always a risk, which I understand (and have done many times before!).
From the photo of the break angle over the saddle, it looks as if there may be some room to adjust the action. I have asked the seller about action height and other questions, but have not heard back yet.
Thanks, everyone, for your thoughts. At the likely price, I'm not overly concerned whether this is high- or low-end, just thought it would be good to know, if possible. It's also interesting about the "L" standing for "Ladies." With my hand/wrist issues, I'm not insulted!
