3/4 - Czech 3/4 violin after Guarneri

The violin model of Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù is one of the great historical achievements of violin making, but it is quite rarely used for smaller sized violins compared to Stradivari patterns. For this reason, this beautiful Guarneri styled 3/4 violin made by a Saxonian master hand is a rare and excellent example of the quality of Saxon instruments. The wide purfling is quite typical for regional violin making traditions; the small, delicatly carved scroll and the one-piece back indicate its good quality, as well as the rich bordeaux-red oil varnish varnish, that bears some traces of use from former young musicians who obviously liked to play the violin. In completely undamaged condition, worked-over by our luthiers, this instrument unfolds its dark, clear sound with good strength.
