About the violinThis violin is modelled after the instruments of the Cremonese maker Guarneri `del Gesù´. As is often the case with `del Gesu´ copies, this instrument is a free interpretation, capturing the flavour and spirit of the instrument. Having said this, the f holes are very reminiscent of the `Kemp´ of 1738. The instrument is in original mint condition and has a length of back of 353 mm.
