579 French Strad Copy
Early 20th Century Mirecourt violin, unlabelled. A high class instrument, made with quality woods and beautifully crafted. The scroll and corners are highlighted in black, another sign of a top instrument. It's a violin for a professional, with a powerful voice, slightly dark, full of character.
Condition: There is a bit of dark staining on the lower bout and ribs. It looks as though a previous owner had a habit of holding it in that place. A couple of light scratches, no cracks or repairs.
Set-up: Original rosewood pegs, which work well. New sound post, Aubert bridge, Wittner tailpiece and Tonica strings.
Price, including a new case and bow: SOLD
