You get what you pay for! As I write this, my violin is in the music shop being repaired. This is the second violin we've tried. The first one was even in worse shape. The bridge we received isn't the correct size for the violin and the neck has a raised piece (that shouldn't be raised at all) that keeps the strings from laying as they should. We knew nothing about violins when we ordered this, but got "schooled" right away after we received both violins. Save yourself some heartache and don't buy one of these violins. Even for a beginner, they aren't worth it. The repair being done on our violin right now is going to cost as much as we paid for the violin itself here on Overstock. Even then, we're not guaranteed that the violin is going to have a long life. Not a great buying experience at all!
