Hello all!

I havent really introduced myself around here yet…My name is Christian Bond, and Im a luthier in the East Texas area. I specialize in restorations, but I have made three violins and a few dulcimers. I make my living doing this, but I am just starting out on my own. I therefor have no good market yet, so I list all my violins on ebay. I usually list them ready for set up, so that the buyer can put his or hers preferred strings, bridge, chinrest, ect. on the instrument. here is my current listing on ebay:

Here are some pictures of the violin when I got it:

What a coincidence that you are auctioning a Stainer because I used to own one just before I bought my Larsson which I have been playing on for the past 22 years. This violin looks so much like my old Stainer Smile

I actually made the mistake of allowing a luthier to thin out the top. He insisted that it would improve the sound and I was young and naive and excited by the idea of getting a better sounding violin back into my hands. It never sounded good again.

Good luck with your auction. Pierre
