Hi all.

 

I hit a snag in my violin purchase. The builder I used before, well, he's playing tag.

 

So I came across two nice deals to consider, I know it's all Cecilio, but I don't know the "real-world" difference.

 

Anyone help?

 

Contender #1 -- Mendini MV400 - Solid Carved Spruce Top, Maple everything else. Real Ebony Fittings.

 

Contender #2 -- Cecilio CVN (colored series) - Solid Carved Spruce Top, Maple everything else. Real Ebony Fittings.

 

All Accessories are the same.

Price... Mendini is $10 less.

 

Is it just MacIntosh vs Grannysmith here, or Apples and Oranges ?

 

Thanks

 

((ps- i am looking at the cecilio cvn-200 also, but looks like it's just a swap of Boxwood fittings instead of Ebony... Pretty but maybe a step down...)

Go for the Cecilio which is not Mendini. Mendini is Cecilio's cheap version.
