Markneukirchen violin after Stradivari, c.1940

This old quality violin was built by an unknown Markneukirchen violin maker approx. 1940. It features medium high archings and was designed after classical patterns of Antonius Stradivarius - a convincing instrument due to its good standards of craftsmanship, excellent tonewoods and preferable sound qualities. The medium grained spruce top and the strong flames of the two-piece maple back introduce typical woods of the Vogtland region in Saxony, with a beautiful grain that is decorated with a luminous golden-brown varnish. The tastefully crafted edges and the archings are the clear works of an experienced violin maker. Our expert luthiers completely worked over this instrument that is with a minor table repair in very good condition, ready to play, so its recommendably warm, mature sound can express its strong and brilliant voice that is rich in overtones.
