Pfretzschner 4/4 full-size violin, Mittenwald Obb, hand made copy of Stradivarius West Germany, hard shell case (Roth), and nice bow. Violin has a small round blemish on the front near the tailpiece (see picture) and a chip on one of the "wings" of the body (possibly hit by bow). Otherwise, violin is in great condition. I acquired this instrument in the mid-1980s when it was about 10 years old and have owned it ever since. It was obtained by a local music store from the original owner and I bought it from the store.
I guess that makes me the 2nd owner (if you don't count the music store). Being a'bluegrass' musician, I would honestly say this is an ORCHESTRAL VIOLIN and is meant to be played in an orchestra. It has a beautiful, sweet and robust tone, is easy to play and loves to sing! I have a "fiddle" for other purposes!The original Roth case has a DING on the small end of the back side and was like that when I got it in the early 1980's. If you have a question you can message me. It is labelled "Roth Shop Adjusted" 8/73 inside and the maker's label is dated 1972.
There are no other marks on the fret-board and I have honestly played it very little since I obtained it over 30+ years ago. It does have 4 tuners as well. It has been gently used over the 45+ years of it's life and has been stored in climate controlled conditions all years I have owned it. Someone needs to have this instrument to love and enjoy.
I attempted to compare prices for current similar instruments and was unable to find one in as good condition for comparison. The price is my'willing to let go' estimate of worth based on condition, ease of playing and age. We are liquidating a large inventory from recently closed 22+ year retail store.
