"But it's to one's advantage to already know a fair bit about Oboes before 'shopping' in Ebay."

You can know everything there is to know about oboes and still buy an instrument that is "blown out" and has a poor scale. There are a lot of cruddy old instruments out there.

"This particular Oboe came from a seller in Great Britain who specialises in reconditioning Oboes and Clarinets."

What is meant by "reconditioning"? Many resellers of instruments just polish them up, tweak a few screws, put them in a new case, and sell for a profit.

"And there was a 'return' offer if not satisfied. She has a good reputation as a Ebay seller."

I guess all you'd be out would be the return shipping cost, but I have not found an instrument priced at lower than $5,000 that I would be happy playing...but I guess that's just me and my standards...
