Description: Violin - Inscribed Friedr.Aug.Glass verfertigt nach. Fies Fabrikat in cremona 17
I am selling my violin which is either an antique or right at around 90 years old. I have played the violin since i was 8 years old. When i was 10 i played in church an was approached afterwards by a women in her sixtys, who was very moved by my performance. She told me that her grandfathers violin had been sitting in her closet sincde he dies 15 years before. She said that she was just waiting for a promising student to pass it on to. Her grandfather played the violin for somewhere around 40 years in an orchestra an traveled all around the world with the violin.
The only restoration i had to do was replace the fingerboard,strings an buy a new bridge. Everything else is all original. Inside it it is inscribed Friedr.Aug.Glass verfertigt nach. Below that it says Antonias Straduarius Fies Fabrikat in Cremona 17. Which means that it is a Straduarius replica, but almost all vioins are.
It has a wonderful tone compliments by every musician that has ever heard me play it. I have treasured it for 16 years, the only reason im am chosing to sell it now is because i have found a great deal on an electric fiddle for much less money than usual an i am in desperate need to start building a bank account so i can go to colledge.
I have taken it to Antonio Strad in San antonio 5 years ago an it was apprased at $3,500 dollars.My price is for the whole package which includes a Lockable,4 bow feltlined hard case with padding zippers an snaps plus a sheet music pouch, and a bow an rosin which are both in great condition along with the full size violin with all brand new strings an sholder rest which are also in great condition i am asking $3,700 because of its age, maker an history. i know that any musician that plays my fiddle will fall in love with it instantly wether it be for personal use or a gift to a young musician it has served me well these 16 years, i hope anyone who gets it will enjoy it an its beautiful tone.
the best way to get in touch with me is my cell 956-244-4540 if no answer leave a voicemail an i will call u back an hopefully we can work something out. i live in new braunfels but will be willing to come meet up anywhere an show you my fiddle.or ship my fiddle as well
