Beautifully varnished copy of a Giovanni Battista Guadagnini violin. This fine violin is a shop model that was started overseas with well-aged spruce and maple, then hand-finished in the USA. It has undergone a re-graduation process to more carefully tune the top and back plates and bass bar to refine the sound of the violin. After assembly, the instrument was hand-varnished with a high-quality oil varnish in the Italian style. Slow and careful application has resulted in a beautiful, transparent, golden Cremonese-style varnish with a nice patina.

The violin has undergone a full setup with beautiful ebony fittings, including heart-shaped pegs and a harp style tailpiece. It is currently set up with Thomastik Rondo strings for a bold and responsive sound. Tonally, this violin is even across all registers and has a very powerful upper register. This is a fantastic chance to own a violin that is hand-finished in the USA, offering the quality of an individual luthier-built instrument at a much lower price.

When purchasing a fine violin we recommend that you contact the showroom and speak to a customer service staff member, who can provide you with details about the instrument. We strongly suggest that you take advantage of our In Home Trial program when considering the purchase of a fine violin. We want you to be sure that the violin you purchase has the sound quality you are looking for.
