The long pegbox and the small scroll is very characteristic. The violin is despite a minor repair at the right soundhole crackfree and in very good condition. It has been luthier-set up with new pegs, bridge, soundpost and strings and can be played right away. The violins sound is bright, open and rich in overtones, a bit sweetish in the upper ranges and generally even and homogen.
