I have two of their fiddles, my main fiddle is an "Antonio Giuliani" I bought from them a little over three years ago.

http://www.kennedyviolins.com/inventory/violin-inventory/antonio-giuliani-violin-outfit/

It runs a little over 700 bucks on their web site.  I am really happy with it and have tried a number of fiddles since and I really never felt a need to "upgrade" at all.  It's a really nice instrument. I honestly don't think I will ever need a better acoustic violin then this one.  It's broken in very nicely in the last 3 years and has served me well. 

My other Kennedy is the less expensive Ricard Bunnel G2 I bought used awhile back from a forum member.  It's a really decent instrument for the price, and If someone asked me my recommendation for an inexpensive "starter" fiddle, I would recommend the Bunnel G2.  

From my experience, Kennedy's set up is good, and their service is top notch.   When I bought my Antonio Giuliani, they emailed me pics of ones they had in stock and let me pick one, and asked what I was looking for in a fiddle, setup, etc.  They even called me a week or so after delivery to make sure I was happy with the purchase.

I would order from them again, without reservation.  Good company, IMO.

I live about 2 miles from them. Good people, and fiddle friendly. I haven't played many of their violins, but their head luthier's benchmade fiddle was great, and had excellent craftsmanship
