I say ugly because the carving of the scroll is so crude. This violin has the most beautiful maple of any I have offered recently. This violin has no real problems at all meaning NO CRACKS!
There are the usual scuffs and scrapes to the varnish one would expect from a violin this age. The sound is very robust with the new Dominate Strings on it, equal to the start price!!! The wood is fine grain spruce on the table (top) and fantastic flamed maple on the ribs, back, neck.
