For sale. Needs a good home and a little renovation. Has seen a lot of use.
If you want to play in Texas you gotta have one of these in the band.

As seen on Craigslist: "Should be an easy fix."

I've seen steel guitars (even on this very forum) in worse shape.

Three good rules to always follow:
1. If you cannot get the sound you are seeking never blame the instrument.
2. If you need a new tennis racket go ahead and purchase it. Never use a violin for anything other than for what it is intended.
3. If you back over your violin in the driveway, be sure to ask yourself, "why was it there in the first place"?

Easy. You pick it up, have a look at it, and put it back down again. Laughing

I think this fiddle has been in a band in Texas.
I think I see some bullet holes.
Where's the chicken wire when you need it? Whoa!

Admit it. How many of you wished that these had been photographs of a banjo in similar straits? Laughing

Looks like it was in a bar fight, should have used a banjo.
