  1. Thanks everyone! My friend cancelled the transaction. The ebay seller was very nice and refunded asap, uneducated buyers mistake but good thing they have a return policy. My friend is also local and seems like she got all wound up in the bidding and did it last minute without asking around first and did not consider the repair costs. Costs of services here are indeed steeper than most states. My last violin repair years ago I actually sent it to another forum member out of state because it would be 3x if I had it done here. She's very thankful for all your insights.
  2. Thanks Martin, just spoke with my friend. Looks like she paid for the instrument already but it hasnt shipped. So the question is, is it at least something that can be justified after the repairs? Unless other experts would agree with Martin to just return it?
  3. Would the repair cost be justifiable? Also is that $$$ figure standard these days?
  4. Hello everyone! A friend of mine just got this violin and looks like it may need some work. I am bombarded with questions but have not much much knowledge on this one since I have been out of the loop, I am hoping somebody here would have more info on this one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/110892270456 Also if anybody can suggest somebody in Los Angeles that could check it out without breaking the bank, let me know. Thanks!
  5. All the humor aside, would anybody have time work on my violin? Willing to ship the violin out of state. Thanks!
  6. Wait wait. No there isnt any opn gap. What you see is filled by a transparent bond. It looks like a gap but it isnt.
  7. Wonder what kind of transparent bond that is? I hope its not contact cement. Yes the back is prefectly bonded, it just annoys me that i see that gap.
  8. It is mighty similiar because it is my violin.
  9. Always been curious about this, was wondering if anybody knows about this violin and the manufacturer? Strad Label but has a logo that says Bruno NY.
  10. Dont really know its stransparent. Theres a tiny gap between the back and the saddle(button) thats why i know its a glue of some sort.
  11. How are 50s juzeks compared to the 1920s ones?
  12. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...e=STRK:MEWAX:IT Is this is legitimate John Juzek?
  13. I live in Los Angeles, CA. It can be quite pricey here. I am willing to ship out of state.
