I think this is a great buy even for the price being up a bit, in my opinion it doesnt get much better than a martin.

Bass features all solid wood mahogany, jumbo with cutaway, 22 fret neck, rosewood neck, rosewood headstock cap, mahogany neck, fisman prefix plus pre-amp and pickup system, doesnt have binding, doesnt make to much of a difference, tortisse shell pic guard, enclosed gear tuners, comes with case.
Plays very well, has great tone, action is set good, sounds and plays much better than other acoustic basses ive played.
Has great martin tone,has great deeps but also allows bright highs, i use for bluegrass, blues and other playing with my friends, usually need amplifier as is in most ABGS.
Seems very durable seeing as it is acoustic, the bridge pins seem good and sturdy, can be used for a small amout of slapping, but popping you should be careful.
