Full Size bench made violin by Frank A. Pascarella in 2013
Modeled after the Guarneri del Gesú template, this violin is stunning instrument both visually, and in tone.
This violin has a warm and sweet tone, solid projection with a clean and excellent response. The violin has a vibrant golden varnish, with orange hues, gorgeous tiger striped maple back and ribs, and tight grain spruce top.
The violin is in great condition, with minimal signs of wear and tear. There is one visible mark just below the trebel side F-hole, most likely from the frog of a bow falling out of the case onto the instrument-a common occurance.
