1990s Sue-brand Chinese-made 4/4 Violin

I wish I could read Chinese characters, but unfortunately I can't -- and so for me the label's only indication of make that I can make out is "Sue" in a script that looks like a brand. Either way, this looks like a 1990s or early 2000s instrument and it's clearly well-made -- it sounds great and responds and handles very well. It's also pretty, with a lot of quartersawn "ray fleck" to the maple's grain that gives it a distinctive look.

This was brought-in on consignment and it only needed light adjustments to be ready to go. I'm gathering that it's all-original save its bridge and it's in good order with a "classical" setup for the string height that, I'm pretty sure, was done by Vermont Violins at some point.

It has good projection and a clean, strong sound that lets you know when you're making mistakes, hah hah.

Repairs included: light adjustments.
