The trade label on this lovely vintage violin says "Friedrich August Haberlein - Leipzig." It is a very well made violin with gentle scooping of the ff-hole wings, crisp lines and a well-cut scroll. The inside work of the linings and blocks is exactingly done. The form and function work together to make a responsive and magnificent sound - responsive in all registers and testimony to the skilled hands that made it. This instrument would be analogous today to a fine Martin factory guitar. With all correct measurements, this violin is fully set up and adjusted and ready for immediate service.
