  1. Mr. Lyndon...........Mr Holmes stated nothing at all as to the Juzek Master Art looking like a Barnabetti violin. It seems that you have a reading comprehension issue. Everyone that knows anything about violins agrees here that the label is genuine and the violin is exactly as it is listed, A John Juzek Master art . Although as with EH Roth violins, W E Hill bows, Collin-Mezin violins, Ford Motorcars, most Tiffany jewlery, etc, It was not made by the person whose name is on the company masthead. As to your other accusation, I am not an associate of Mr Hound, but I would certainly rather be associated with him than you, with all due respect. Mr Hound seems rather reasonable and stable.
  2. Sorry about the "clueless blogger " comment. "Uninformed", bloggers would have been more respectful and appropriate. "Clueless" does have a name calling element to it and I apologize. Thank you for weighing in on the similarities between E H Roth and Juzek Master Arts. At the end of the day, It isn't a very significant topic in the world of great violins as they are both commercial shop violins. Although each are at the upper end of commercial violin ranges. They can be a nice alternitave to handmade master violins that cost well outside of many people's budgets. I know personally a Russian violinist that played on a Juzek Master Art violin for several years after coming to America as an exile from Russia for religious reasons. He was not allowed to take more than the clothes on his back with him from Russia and a Juzek Master Art violin was the best that he could afford. He eventually got a modern Italian violin and it became his primary instrument, but he has fond memories of the Juzek Master Art that got him his first Symphonic Violinist chair in the USA.
  3. It seems that we have found Scotland's answer to Lyndon. Jealous and mean spirited responses, name calling, verbal equilivents of sticking out your tongue, All from completely clueless bloggers! If you look closely at Juzek Master Arts, they are virtual copies of E H Roth violins with different varnish. That is a fact! And none of this has anything at all to do with JTL trade names!
  4. It appears that you have some personal problem with Mr. Hound , Lyndon. Frankly it sounds like you are jealous of him or his success as a violin seller on Ebay. Any violin dealer, including even novice dealers can easily deduce that this violin is indeed an original, properly labelled John Juzek Master Art violin. Your comments always seem to fall into one or both of two catergories; either very naieve or mean spirited and jealous. Perhaps your time would be better spent beating the bushes or developing contacts like Mr Hound has done . If you changed your tact you might begin to acquire these nice saleable , medium to high quality violins that Mr Hound seems to regularly come up with. As to the other posters who obviously haven't seen Juzek Master Art's , I and other violin dealers and enthusiasts feel that the Juzek Master Art violins quite possibly were made by the E H Roth firm in Markneukirchen Germany, and varnished in Czechlovakia or maybe even in the USA by Metropolitan Music. This Master Art is clearly a very nice original example in near mint condition from around 1920 and it sold for a very nice wholesale price! The average retail shop price for this violin would be $7000 to $7500.
  6. Sorry to have to give you bad news, Bonnie. You sold that nice promising high school student a fake Chinese violin that is worth next to nothing. If you have the student take it to any reputable violin shop , they will give them the sad news. Unfortunately, that violin has never been to Italy or even near Italy. Perhaps you could write back and explain why you would expect to buy a valuable old Italian violin for a fraction of it's value on Ebay? Do you also have a Rolex watch that you bought on Ebay for $50? If you do, I am also sorry to have to inform you that it is a fake, too! Are you possibly in the market for a good deal on a bridge in Brooklyn New York?
  7. MON DIEU!!!!!! Philip has discovered that auctions on Ebay are manipulated!!! He seems to spend countless hours investigating this outrage! Hey Philip, When you get finished with Ebay, Here is a list of other shocking truths that you can investigate. 1: All auctions, Everywhere are manipulated! 2: People who work in Government hire all of there relatives to no show, or no work jobs! 3: The Easter Bunny doesn't exist! 4: Politicians lie!!! 5:Catholic Priests are mostly homosexual and here in the USA, spend lots of their time molesting young boys! 6: Some women don't really love their husbands, They marry them for MONEY!!! 7:Santa Claus doesn't exist!
  8. Gee! I hate to have to use the "M" word , again, But , are you a MORON? Or are you involved someway in trying to con a stupid Ebayer into buying a Romainian $100 violin for a few thousand? Alex! What do you think about this wonderful "ITALIAN" violin?
  9. Sorry , I was at a loss for words. After trying to digest the enormity of the idiocy of the Maestronet Auction Scroll population in general. and the even greater moronic capacity of the Ebay population, I am ready to throw in the towel , much like you all throw in your money and "intellectual" muses , into the never ending pile of worthless , trash , masquerading as violins , here and on Ebay! Go Ahead!!! Keep dreaming that some fool , living in a trailer, Sorry, I meant" mobile home", would even ever have a rare old Italian violin that he found at the dump or at a tag sale. And further that he is so stupid that he will put it on Ebay for a genius like you to find for $50. All of those violins that you fools keep talking about are "FAKES"!!!!!! and you are suckers. You are all bound and determined to keep getting fleeced! There is nothing that I can do. Even when you are faced with a real, albeit rather pedestrian , Old Italian Violin, and I point it out to you, You all totally ignore it and the features and details that make it authentic. After writing more inane drivel, You return to dreaming about Chinese and Romanian fake violins! Hey! Have you seen the latest violins that bestviolins has up? What do you think? A real Guarnieri violin or what? Maybe you can get it for $3000! That is about $3,000,000 less than it is worth. Also, check out violin dada, select violins, stradivari 1712 , richietman, ( How about his "The Gypsy" violin? for only $15,000!) "and all the others. What dopes they are, selling rare Italian violins for a few thousand dollars. You my friends , Are Certified Violin Genius's !!!
  10. Just because you haven't spotted them doesn't mean they are not there.Actually.If I haven't spotted them, It does mean that they are not there !!! I'm not just running off at the mouth like you are. I and many other people can actually tell Italian violins from non Italian violins.
  11. Why isn't anyone weighing in on this violin? Every time bestviolins , or any of the hundreds of other con artists on Ebay, lists a Chinese or Romainian , "Italian Labeled " violin, You all start fantasizing about winning the lottery with your brilliant discovery. On and on you all proselytize about the wondrous Italian violin that has miraculously appeared on Ebay. Speculation abounds that the "Chinese" violin exhibits the characteristics of the Cremonese masters! Many Maestronet experts see the hand of various Amati's or other Italian icons in made yesterday junk worth between $50 and $300 wholesale. I have previously stated that zero old Italian violins are or have ever been on Ebay. I stand corrected! This violin http://cgi.ebay.com/Ancient-Fine-Antique-I...93%3A1|294%3A50 is in my humble opinion is actually an old Italian violin! While it is in rough condition, with many crack repairs, both sides of the scroll cheeked, button repaired and much worm damage, It actually exhibits characteristics of Old Italian Violins! How could you all have missed this? I am curious to see what everyone thinks about it.
  12. My heart almost stopped when I gazed on your pictures! I thought to myself, "This person doesn't know what he's got!!" The elegant chamferring of the scroll edges, The clean outline, The precise ff's showing distinctive Millenese charm, The widening of the grain on the top plate, expanding towards the flanks, The shimmering vibrance of the finely applied oil varnish, clearly showing it's connection to the old Cremonese masters. This violin SCREAMS , ITALY!!!!!! Several "tells" point to this being a very rare and valuable POS violin. I believe that it was possibly made circa 1820 in Milan, Italy, by either Mathias POS or Euginio POS. AT ANY RATE AND BY ANY MEASURE, IT IS MOST CERTAINLY A "POS"!!!!! Most of those sneaky established dealers, will not properly identify this POS for you so I recommend that you sell it on EBAY. Properly described, It may bring in the range of $20,000 like one famous unattributed POS purportedly did a couple of years ago on EBAY.
  13. I am sorry if I have made you angry, Mr. Beresnitsky. I respect what you are doing on EBAY. Anyone that spends thousands of dollars on EBAY for fake Rare Italian or French violins , made yesterday in Romania or China , Gets exactly what they deserve! And bestviolins deserves every cent that it receives from these "Fantacy Island" violin connisseur's. Don't give up yet, Mr Beresnitsky, Check out the other threads in The Auction Scroll. There are numerous others wondering every day if the "POGGI", or "FINOLLI", or hundreds of others show , "The hand of Millenese makers" , or "Exhibit the characteristics of Bolzano makers" or similar foolish drivel! Let's just keep it between you and I that it's all Romanian and Chinese junk, That there are exactly 0 Old, Rare , Italian or French violins that are now or were ever for sale on EBAY! Seriously, I wish you the best of luck selling these violins, Mr. Beresnitsky, You richly deserve everything that you get from your endeavor, and the buyers richly deserve what they get! In America, we have another saying, "If it sounds too good to be true, IT IS !!!!!" GOD BLESS, and VIVA ITALIA!!
  14. Are all of you violin experts BRAIN DEAD? bestviolins is a CON MAN!!!!!! It's what he does for living. He doesn't try to hide being a con man at all!! I actually applaud him for doing such a fine job serving capitalism over here in America. Alexander, You may not know it, But you are a vital part of Joey Darwin's "Theory of Financial Selectivity" Which is: People who are too stupid to have money should be fleeced by people smarter than them. Alexander, I would love to meet you and buy you a drink. You are helping America get rid of the "stupider end of the intelligence scale"!! Is STUPIDER a word? There are many old American truism"s that apply here. "a fool and his money are soon parted" , " No one ever lost money underestimating the taste of the American public" , " There is a fool born every minute", and it seems that most of them follow EBAY thinking that con artists like bestviolins, Malibu Music, Eboy and countless others, are really going to sell them a rare Italian violin worth millions for little or nothing! Sorry about the spelling and punctuation errors. And by the way, If you have any money left over after buying rare French and Italian violins on EBAY, I have shares for sale in a large bridge, I can't divulge the name of the bridge, but it is in the New York metropolitan area.
