Bought this violin from ebay for £400, it is a "Josef Kloz in Mittenwald 1760" - antique 4/4 violin, i am only a beginner, and this will be my first violin. (if i refurbish it) The wood is still in very nice antique condition with some light scores to the surface, some little chips also to the edges as you would expect with a used antique item. Also looks like there has possibly been a few little pieces of wood to the rim edges that may have been replaced or repaired, although I cannot confirm this, perhaps that is just the way it was made? Violin will need restrung and possibly may benefit from a clean and polish. is it worth it ? how much would it cost me extra? Thank you in advance!
