Beautifully varnished copy of a Giovanni Battista Guadagnini violin. This 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.
What makes our string instruments the best on the market? We purchase each violin directly from the maker — a rare practice that allows us to set high quality standards and lower the cost — passing the savings on to you.
All final assembly and FREE SETUP is performed locally in our Washington State shop by professional luthiers. Your violin is ready to fine-tune and play from the moment you open the case.
With both the highest-rated violins and customer care in the U.S., we are the only company confident enough to back up our instruments. Experience the Kennedy Violins difference today!
