Hi everyone, this is a violin that my orchestra director has let me use to see if I am interested in purchasing it. It sounds beautiful, I just have some questions about it that I would like to get cleared. I also have a violin bow that I purchased last year that has very little information available. The certificate says that it has an effaced label of GUIDANTUS. The varnish is very retouched. The body length is 13 7/8" scant. Also, it writes that it is a flat model and that both the top and back is completely lined with a strip of ebony. It could have been decorative and protection from further wear. What is the actual reason? Is this style of repair a style of a certain school of violin making? The scroll is also grafted to a new neck and I can see the new wood. The bow is labeled A. FRACALOSSI and is mounted with only MOP and no silver. The violin was appraised in 2002 for 25,000 USD and is being sold for 7,500 USD. The bow was bought for 1,350 USD. Is the violin worth it? I also would like to just know a little more of both of these beautiful instruments. Thank you!
