This masterfully crafted violin by multi-award winning luthier Scott Cao himself is truly something to behold. Cao's work and attention to detail shine through on this copy of Guarneri del Gesu's 1741 famous "Vieuxtemps" violin.

Scott Cao is known the world over for his meticulous accuracy in capturing the original essence of famous stringed instruments of the 18th Century Golden Age. This is especially true for this 2018 Guarneri copy, on which Cao has managed to mirror the eccentric quirks that del Gesu is famous for.

This Vieuxtemps copy has an instant, lively response across all strings with sweet highs and clear, rich lows. It is a joy to play in the truest sense of the word. The tight, even grain of the spruce top and elegant, flowing flame maple back and ribs are dressed in a varnish of exquisite golden ground with a rich, faded cherry red finish.


Don't miss this rare opportunity to own one of the few instruments made by a true modern Master Luthier.
