I'm looking for an inexpensive violin for my wife's birthday as she has been considering learning to play it but she doesn't want to spend a lot on one in case she can't find enough time.  I just found this one on ebay and was wondering if anyone had an opinion on whether it would be worth the BIN price to take a chance on?

Please reply asap, I really know little about violins.  Im a mandolin guy.  Thanks.

As far as I am concerned the case alone is worth it.

I was just going to say that the case is a nice hard shaped case.
If nothing else, you don't have much to loose. Can't say much about the violin but it doesn't look terrible. Could have a good sound but there is no way to tell.
It's a little beat up but I can't see any cracks.
