    Item Description:

    4/4 Caspar da Salo workshop violin for sale. Made in Germany anywhere from the late 1800s to early 1900s. This violin has been looked over by a luthier, properly set up, and is ready to play. It has brand new strings and tuning pegs (the original pegs were cut at an older, steeper taper, so the peg holes have been properly reamed for modern taper pegs). Fancy inlaid double purfling front and rear. Inlaid MOP on the vintage tailpiece. Comes with an ebony chinrest. No cracks on the front of the instrument or on the nicely flamed maple rear. The only thing to keep an eye on is that one rib has pushed out slightly (as shown in the pictures, beneath the chinrest). The luthier said that it may stay steady that way for many more years, but just to check it periodically. It does not have any effect on the sound quality or structural rigidity of the instrument. For as old as this instrument is, it is in remarkably good overall shape.

    It has a clear, bright tone with great projection.

    Comes with a vintage case and two generic bows. One bow has no markings and a crude repair job, and the other is a Japanese bow made of Brasilwood with an ebony frog. Either one would need a rehair to be used.
