This is a huge sounding Maggini fiddle. Made in 1905 on Germany, it's a lot nicer than most of the trade fiddles you come across. Label says it's #128 and has Ole Bull written on label in the corner as well. Some illegible writing inside treble f hole. This violin was informally appraised around $1800 not counting all the add ons. The wood is very highly flamed, nice honey golden colored varnish. Much more detail than your usual maggini copy. No cracks on body. *The pegbox has a crack on the A string peg, but it's been there for years and it holds tune perfect*. I've never had it slip and this fiddle has been a main touring instrument for years. Set up with Daddario Kaplan Vivo strings(can install helicore if preferred), wittner tailpiece, wittner chin rest. Has LR baggs pickup installed and the action is low and fast, just right . It plays so smooth and easy, that it's tough to let go of.

If you're looking for a player's instrument that has a massive, mature, and open acoustic tone, fast low action, and is a workhorse fiddle, this is it.

Includes a basic functional case. No bow.
