I recently acquired this lionshead violin I am currently doing research on them and I just get more and more confused. As I stated in the title there is not identification paper inside the body of the fiddle that I can see. It may have moved however I do not have the tools to look inside of it. I want to know if there is any reason why I should not take this fiddle in to get repaired. Or if I should just set it in an auction on eBay for parts.
Yes...I know...probably Dutzenarbeit ...not esp. good quality. BassClef might appreciate the very dark varnish more than me (but I do like darker varnishes...just not quite to this chocolate brown level)... However...its just a tad different than some of the others...so I'm just wondering if it's only a variation on the theme...or if there's more to it... http://www.ebay.ca/itm/131039511894?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 ...and yes...while I might not want to show up to rehearsal with this violin...I like carved scrolls (as long as they're not creepy old man heads)...fancy purfling and other such extraneous goodies...
