Dating back to around 1910, this beautiful antique Markneukirchen violin was crafted in the highly successful ateliers of Schuster & Co. in Markneukirchen. It is a rather broad instrument patterned after a Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu model, bearing the model label.

A transparent and luminously beautiful golden-brown varnish with meaningful traces from intensive playing play up the flaming on the two-piece maple back. This antique violin, which has been kept in very good condition and is ready to play, will win the experienced player over for multiple reasons, most notably because of its outstanding, powerful sound with its bright, clear and radiant sound rich in overtones.
