1930s German-made Unmarked 4/4 Violin

This is a nice, simple, '30s-era, unmarked but probably German-made, 4/4 violin. It has a pumpkin-like finish, good husky and clear fiddling tone, and smart handling. I'd done some work on it last year as I recall, but the owner decided he's not so much into fiddling anymore and has dropped off a variety of violins for sale.

Just recently, my guy Andy went through this and thinned-up the bridge and set it up a little faster and more accurately and it's ready to go and playing spot-on.

Repairs included: new chinrest, minor seam repairs (previously), replacement bridge (older), new strings, new tailgut, cleaning, setup.

Condition notes: it's in good order, free from cracks, but has plenty of small scratches in the finish. It looks good overall, though, and has good fittings -- a 4-fine-tuner tailpiece and generous chinrest.

It comes with: an old hard case (not pictured, but there).
