This is a beautiful violin with flamed maple ribs and back, and a very emphasized spruce grain. I know for a fact that there is no tag inside the violin unfortunately, but i do know that it is a stradivarius copy probably made in europe in the late 1800's to the early 1900's. Comes with a high quality violin bow that my friend used as a practice bow, and a shoulder rest that has rubber ending to protect the violin. everything was given to me by a friend who was in a San Diego Orchestra who said that the violin is worth anywhere from $2000 to $5000. The bow he said was mediocre but adequate for a beginner/intermediate player about $300 and he didnt tell me anything about the bridge. and thats about it. i expect to sell everything at 1000 or more but what ever happens happens. The strings were changed to Dominant strings when received it last year. Trust me this violin will probably be one of the most beautiful violins you will ever see.
The violin has no cracks in the body, However, it looks like the neck was well repaired from a break between the neck and body, but it is all fine now as can be seen in the last picture
the price of shipping might go up if you are not in america
Best of wishes
