Maggini Model Violin
This instrument was modeled after Maggini and has double purfling as well as an extra turn of the scroll, with F-holes typical of Maggini. Varnish is spirit based and honey colored. The two piece top is of close grain spruce, and the back is of two pieces of beautiful highly flamed Bosnian maple, with ribs and neck matching. The instrument was made in the early part of the 20th Century and is in good condition. A permanent cheek patch has been installed to repair a crack in the "A" peg hole of the peg box. The back has a small sound post crack which has been well repaired with a soundpost patch.
