If possible, ask someone who knows a lot about musical instruments to accompany you, maybe a friend who could play the instruments would be able to  access whether the instruments is in good conditions by playing it and listening to how it sounds.

Make sure that the money you’re paying for the used instrument is worth it. Research first how much the instrument costs if it’s brand new; go to different shops, compare prices, compare the condition of the used instruments and assess whether it’s truly a good one.
