I'd love to get a non-electric violin but cash is a little tough to come by.  There are always well-used violins on ebay for a good price but often need refinished, restrung, and cleaned up.  

Just curious what the experience is out there of restoring one of these well-used violins and whether or not it's a viable path to pursue.  I'm sure a lot of it depends on what the condition of the exact piece is but assuming there are no cracks in the body, are the three repairs listed above beyond the abilities of a novice?
