  1. Where my point was is in ergonomics. How suitable is for her to play in a violin with such features? What when she wants to turn to a standard, professional and more orthodox violin?
  2. But, how do we know if it is a Viola for sure?
  3. I dunno, To me the thing is more like this: If someone who is an expert, or knows much more than me convinced me that a 60 dollars irregular chinese violin(yes, good sounding violin) worths 3000 dollars that would be right? I don't know, It doesn't feel right to me. PSD: Of course I'm not saying this is a 60 dollars violin, it's just an example.
  4. Yep, I can see what you mean. I just said it thinking the best for the girl's learning process and how playing an "ambiguous" instrument could affect it. It reminds me to one of those Disney movies about "you can be whatever you wanna be". The title would be something like "the viola which came out as a violin". That would be perfect for the new kind of education that is being instructed to kids nowadays lol.
  5. I guess now the thing is about how old his daughter is, anyways If I was him I would be seriously tempted to cancel the deal. @Rue If I was him I would use viola strings to see how it sounds lol
  6. But... would it be OK for his daughter to play with a Viola size fiddle?
  7. I already made that clarification my friend.
  8. It is hard to believe due to the summer/winter temperature and humidity contrast that any instrument would face in its "native climate". Maybe if the instrument was made in south America, south Asia or any Arabic country you would be right.
  9. I thought that at the beggining but the last two letters of the second word look more like "YA" than "IA" so i have not been able to relate them to anything.
  10. Hi Mister Sauders, May I ask you how can one tell the varnish was probably replaced? By the color?
  11. Hi! Here I bring more pictures following mister Rue's advice as many of you requested.
  12. Hi guys, here some closed pictures of the bow. So can you tell what it says or if it is Pernambuco?
  13. Hello mister Blankface, Can you tell what is the second stamped word? And how would one be able to say if it is pernambuco or not?
