This is a fabulous three quarter size violin labelled Joseph Bassiot.Luthier. Lyon. Anno 1930.
It is a lovely violin, with an attractive sound, full of character, clear and bright.
The extremely transparent and highly glossy varnish in a light nutmeg brown lets the beauty of the deeply flamed two piece back shine through.
There are no splits or woodworm whatsoever.
Length of back 13 3/16″.
Upper bouts 6 3/16″.
Middle bouts 4 1/4″.
Lower bouts 7 5/8″.
Our luthier has set it up with Dominant strings, a new bridge, and re fitted the pegs for easy tuning.
A very pleasant instrument for a smaller player
If you require more photos, that is not a problem.
We will lower the bridge for shipping.
