OR Best Offer!!! gently used violin, bow, case, beginner book and rosin. Ideal for the serious beginner: Gunter Maibach stringed instruments are entirely handmade in workshops which used the handcrafted, European tradition started in the late 1800’S in Germany. Each instrument is crafted from select, seasoned tonewood. The reflecting, flamed back and ribs are complimented by a superb, straight, narrow-grained, Spruce top. Varnished with a beautiful amber-colored varnish which is both bright and translucent. If, I had any desire to play violin, I would keep this one (which I bought for my son who played it once and lost interest). Really just looking to get a decent offer from someone who will use it ^_^
