Stringed instruments from the workshops of carl August Schuster in Markneukirchen, Saxony are well-known for their excellent standards of craftsmanship and outstanding sound qualities. The Markneukirchen violin offered here is an especially successful example of these instruments, that bears the original label and features both preferable aesthetic and musical qualities. It was built in 1947 after well-proven Antonio Stradivari patterns, with a table of medium grained spruce and a one-piece back of attractive sycamore maple. These premium tonewoods were chosen to build an expressive instrument after an individual model with medium archings, that is preserved in mint condition. The purfling extends far into the corners and is the fine work of an experienced and well-educated hand. The shining, golden-brown colored oil varnish is preserved in best condition. This good Markneukirchen violin and was completely worked over by our expert luthiers, who made it ready to play. This instrument clearly deserves our special recommendation, for its strong and resonant sound, that is bright and open, a precise voice with a mature character.
