“The Vieuxtemps Guarneri is a violin built by the renowned Italian instrument maker Giuseppe Guarneri in 1741. One of the last built by Guarneri, the instrument gained its named after being by the French 19th century violinist Henri Vieuxtemps. The instrument was later used by Yehudi Menuhin, Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman, and has been sometimes called the “Mona Lisa” of violins for its craftsmanship, condition, and rich sound. In the summer of 2010, violin was offered for sale by Bein & Fushi of Chicago on behalf of its owner Ian Stoutzker. The asking price of $18 million, would, if met, make the violin the most valuable instrument in history.”…This “Vieuxtemps” violin is no bout one of the most characteristic violin made in Del Gesu’s golden period, a excellent design for virtuoso type usage: slightly shorter body length/neck that makes shifting and playing in higher register effortlessly. High arching and focused body pattern, huge sound box delivers fine concert type tone, no weak spot. Accurate copy of this historical famous piece.
