The Hofner violins are hand selected by our buyer on a limited basis. Hofner has hand crafted instruments since 1887. The Vintage Guarneri is hand crafted on a 1741 Bartolomeo Giuseppe Guarneri, known as Del Gesu, using maple and spruce from their oldest stock of tonewood, air dried for decades. This aging process helps impart a maturity of tone. Extensive study and detailed measurements of the original are used to create the outlines, archings and the thickness of the plates. Finally, the ground coats and varnish layers are gradually applied with specific color palettes that result in a treasured heirloom. Case and bow sold seperately.
