Here's the back story...
Over the course of 3-4 years I ordered 10-12 violins from the eBay Chinese folks like yita music and others. If it looked like a decent Guarneri I'd check it out. These are the ones that you see for about $400 or $500 plus shipping and when they arrive you immediately toss the bridge, sound post, strings, bow, case, and maybe the pegs. This was one of those, but the pegs were usable once they were fitted properly. The sound post and bridge were replaced and set up properly. Strings are newer. I've passed the other violins on, but I kept this one as my go-to, around the house, handy for a ten minute practice session fiddle. I firmly believe that this fiddle would sell for well over $1200 in the shop as-is. It is that nice.
I'll include decent black carbon fiber bow, and a GEWA dart case, the one that you can buy online for $100. Nice case, and a great fit!. I need to get $450 plus shipping. I've got twice that in it and it is worth more.
Of course, everyone needs to be happy with the deal, so take seven days to evaluate it and if it doesn't work for you, for any reason, just return it as you got it and you'll only be out the shipping both ways. If you are in Atlanta, you can take it for a spin in person.
