That is a very bad deal. I do not mean to sound unkind about it, but $100 is about 5x the amount of what you can get them new for. It depends on how often you get punched by older brothers or do rough things. As a child, my neighbors and older brother beat on me a lot because I was much younger then they were. I was brought up to be pretty strong so when I started playing it did not hurt. My cousin on the other hand was 15 when he played for the first time. He was like tearing because it hurt. I do not want to discourage you, though. I bet you will be fine, just don't think about it.
Also, just remember, if indeed it is painfull, the pain will pass in 10 seconds MAXIMUM! Just like getting a friendly punch by a friend.
