I'm new to the forum, I started to look into buying a violin and I got a really (to my eyes) beautiful offer.
I started recently studying and practicing violin and I would like to upgrade from my Chinese violin. I could also continue practicing with the current one, but I was thinking a "new" violin could improve my experience.
Because I am really new to this instrument I would like to ask some more expert people what do you think about it.
I'll post some picture here. The violin has a repaired crack under the tailpiece. Of course I already know that the label is fake (it says Joannes Baptista Guadagnini fecit Parma ferviens C S R 1741), the price is around 1500 USD, so it is just impossible is a Guadagnini. I just wanted to see if I should look into something else at this point price or just stick with the current violin till the restriction are over and I can visit a store.
Thanks really a lot in advance for your help
Stay safe and practice!
