Hi there, I'm looking for an opinion on my violin. I posted some pictures and a description on my website at https://studiokingma.ca/Pfretzschner/ Basically, I'm just curious as to whether it's authentic, since I see a lot of posts floating around about fake labels and markings. I'm a violinist but not a luthier. From pictures, I can't tell if it's Chinese or German or factory or handmade. All I know is whether or not I like the sound! Thanks everyone
Just incase anybody has a hole burning in their pocket, I should perhaps point out that this: http://cgi.ebay.at/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=331141504486 isn’t a Johann Adam Schönfelder Anno 1743, but an instrument from about 100 years later with a facimile (fake) label. The very early Neukirchener are very few and far between, and much nicer, and would, as I have pointed out time and time again, have the label on the inside of the treble middle rib,and not in the “normal” place.
