  1. No to all, I am completely new to violins.
  2. Thank you guys, I now realize that purchase would have been a mistake. The violin later sold for about $1500 (well outside of my budget anyway).
  3. Hey, still trying to buy my first violin. Looking for one around the 750-1000 price range. Looking at a August Kohr k565 that I found for under $700. Does anyone have any other violin suggestions, or advice.
  4. I am new to this whole thing looking to buy my first violin. I have read a lot on this topic and realize that getting a better violin now will probably be more beneficial at least as far as staying enthusiastic. I have found a violin, but unfortunately do not know enough about them (I do not want to trust the seller completely). Seller says it is labelled Johannes Pressenda of Turin, but most likely it is a tribute piece styled alike. He also says it is a 1850 Czech violin. Any feedback at all would be helpful and much appreciated. http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l582/pahdah_hound/Czech%201870%20Lury%201-19-2013/Czech14.jpg http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l582/pahdah_hound/Czech%201870%20Lury%201-19-2013/Czech1.jpg http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l582/pahdah_hound/Czech%201870%20Lury%201-19-2013/Czech2.jpg http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l582/pahdah_hound/Czech%201870%20Lury%201-19-2013/Czech8.jpg http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l582/pahdah_hound/Czech%201870%20Lury%201-19-2013/Czech9.jpg http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l582/pahdah_hound/Czech%201870%20Lury%201-19-2013/Czech13.jpg Posting the photos in Link form because they are very large and I know you guys hate that.
