A German Violin probably made in Markneukirchen around 1920 or so. It has a Kurt Gutter label even though I don't think Mr Gutter is the maker. The violin is in good shape and sounds very good. You can hear the soundclip under German Violin #5 on my music page. The violin is set up very well and plays extremely easy. It has helicore medium strings. It will be shipped in a low end hard shell case for protection. The violin does have a small saddle crack that is 3 inches long. It has been closed and cleated and is minor. If you need any further details, let me know.
