Paste link into a browser window: [isdntekvideo] An old fiddle. Bright sounding and full size 4/4 German violin with a label of Gustav August Ficker 1959. We believe the violin to be older than that, most likely from the early 1900's. Would make a good hoedown fiddle. Violin has label pictured and under the label inscription in the wood "made in Germany. " Good condition with new ebony pegs and tailpiece. Tailpiece has four fine tuners, although picture shows only one. Its ready for immediate play. Varnish has a nice funky old patina and the violin has a lot of character. Wide grain spruce top, maple back and ribs with moderate flame. No cracks or seam openings on the top or the back. One small rib repair on the right side of the neck and one small glued 2mm hairline on the A string peg hole. See the video at the top of the page for a sound sample. Violin will ship in a sturdy box with the bridge down. No case or bow. PORTANT TERMS OF SALE Please read as by purchasing you are agreeing to these terms.
