  1. Haha thank you for all the help. From the get go i figured it wasnt an actual Guarneri, I just wanted to know what it was. Thanks for all the help!
  2. http://s1152.photobucket.com/user/lakegrayson/profile/ The url above is the link to my photobucket account. It has the pictures of the Guarneri violin and another violin which i have absolutely no clue about. It has all its strings but lacks any labels anywhere on or in it. The second one (with all 4 strings and the ornate decor on the back) i just found in a case in my basement earlier today, and neither parent has any knowledge of it. What are these violins??
  3. Thank you all for the kind words. Alright, I will post photos somewhere and add the link as soon as i can. Oh i completely agree that the "Strad in the attic" is all too common.. and I'm 99 percent sure it is not an original Guarneri instrument but on the off chance that it was, I had to find out. There is also another violin i found with it that doesn't have any labels on it. Could someone help me with the other one? Thank you for everything
  4. Hello everyone, I was wondering if someone could confirm or deny the authenticity of this violin that used to be my dads elderly neighbors fathers violin. My father received this violin as a present from his elderly neighbor back in 1969 or so. That neighbors father apparently played it a long time ago. He had received the violin in the 1840s (?). I was looking for another cord for my guitar amp in the basement and stumbled upon it. Being an avid cello player for 8 years now (I'm in 9th grade) i immediately realized what i could have in my hands when i read the label inside of the violin. I can post pictures if need be. i was wondering if it could possibly be a genuine Guarneri violin. "Joseph Guarnerius fecit Cremonae anno 1735 IHS +" is what the label on the inside of the violin says. Please and thank you for any help.
