If you have some extra cash (several thousand if not more to be exact!) and feel qualified to bid on one of the many instruments presented here at auction, you can rest easy that many of these are probably way beyond my financial reach so go for it. LOL

The Cellos are listed first then bows and then many, many violins and violin bows from cheap to ridiculous.

I'd love to hear some them played though.

I couldn't even afford the buyer's premium for the cheapest bow.

Way out of my league, and I don't even have an exchange rate to factor in!

Some are worth more than the car I drive...although, one night I had a dream about owning a real Strad, and I was all worried about keeping it safe, and not letting anyone touch it, LOL. I could not imaging owning a violin worth a lot of bucks, I would be afraid to play it...

I like the idea of bidding on eBay, just for the hell of it lol

Just seen a full
Size electric £65 plus a tenner for delivery.
No make listed though, it says "electrical switch" on the frame but that's right by the on/off button

Haha, did you see my other post about the Violin I won at an eBay auction? It is supposed to arrive today...I was not even planning on buying one, I was pretty much bidding for the hell of it, and no one else bid on that one, and won it for $20, LOL, plus $65 shipping, so...we will see how it turns out to be. But yeah, bidding on eBay can get addicting, but fun!
