Evasio Emilio Guerra?

Recommended Posts

Hi Forum,

what's your opinion about that violin? Could it be from Evasio Emilio Guerra, Turino 1947 as labelled?

I've bought it 30 years ago for € 3.000,- and just found out that Violins of this maker are sold between € 20.000 and € 50.000 today.

To be honest, I find the sound is not really satisfying, considering the price-tag, but maybe it would just need a bit adjustment.

Thanks for your help!

I don't think this bears any relation to Guerra, whose violins have rather flat broad edges with big long corners, and scrolls which are inked and which have a very finely worked spine.

The scroll of your violin looks quite attractive, and I wouldn't dismiss it as "the usual", but I have no idea what it is.

Hi Guys,

thanks for your help. It's (unfortunately ;-) what I've expected. It is a nice violin though, and maybe Michael Appleman is right and I gonna get it to sound more to my taste and use it as a "backup" violin. My current Violin is a Jan Kuljk from 1837 which I really love...
