A prototype violin featuring oil varnish that usually used on our higher end violin, for exquisite antique varnish that also benefits the tone! Bold, dark, projective tone with fantastic projection that carries the tone on distance! Fine European spruce with master hand applied OIL varnish for optimal resonance and open tone. Exquisite reversed maple flame attributes to the original Canone. AA graded seasoned wood that’s plate tuned and graduated for an inviting, antique voice with warm and full projection. Deep ringing G string, great depth and sings with bold dimension. Sweet and focused mid register that speaks with clarity, clean  E string that’s not overly bright highly projective tone. A superb Guarneri with a deep strong open voice, guaranteed the best violin in 1-2k price range!  Highly recommend for pro/advanced players and collectors!
