Hello and thanks for looking! Up for auction is an old, antique,Italian made,full size,4/4 violin by Francesco Guadagnini in the year 1927. The label inside reads "Francesco Guadagnini fece in Torino nell'anno 1927." The 1927 appears to be hand written and next to this t is what appears to be a stamp of his with F G in it and some fancy flowery things... I apologize but I was not able to get a photo of this, the pictures kept turning out completely black inside. The violin has some repaired splits on the top and a repaired crack on the bottom rib. All seem to be well done and don't seem to affect the beautiful, woody sound of this instrument. The violin comes with a new Aubert bridge and new gut strings that were all just put on. The overall length is 23", the back measures 14 1/4", the upper bout is 6 1/2" and the lower bout is 8 1/4". I have no guarantee of the authenticity of this instrument as I have no paperwork for it, but it is a beautiful looking and sounding violin nonetheless. It would be a great inspiration for a beginner with it's beautiful tone. Any other questions, please feel free to ask and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability as I am no expert. T is no case and no bow with this violin and sale is final with no returns. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!
