I am offering for sale my 4/4 “Sgarbi” violin. This is a finely crafted instrument with a bold, bright voice. Commanding. I purchased this violin from Jarek Powichrowski, owner of Princeton violins, in 2014. Jarek is a very talented violinist and luthier up in Princeton, NJ. His asking price for this violin was $3500. LOB is 358 mm. The two-piece back is of beautiful tiger maple, and the original dry finish is wonderful. This violin has two professionally repaired, very stable cracks in the top. You can view Jarek’s demo video of this violin at: or simply go to youtube and search: “Violin Antonio Sgarbi da Finale Emilia 1890”. There’s only one with that title.
Since obtaining this violin, I had my luthier replace the ebony tuning pegs with geared Wittners. I currently have a new set of Thomastik Dominant strings on the violin. It is a very bold fiddle. It is very well suited to bluegrass and old time fiddling. I can offer a nearly new Core 4/4 case for an additional $95. Please feel free to call or email with any questions.
