John van Wirdum violin for sale



Hello everyone,
Up for sale is my lovely violin, which I’ve been playing for the past 35 years. It was made specially for me by master luthier, John Van Wirdum, in 1986, using the “Messiah” Stradivarius as a template.
I’ve always loved this violin and have considered it one of John’s best sounding instruments, as have other players who have tried it over the years. It has been used in all my recordings, including my last album, “Sonnet.” I’ve played innumerable concerts with it across the globe, both classical and popular. And its tone, like a fine wine, has just developed more and more over the years. The tone is rich, warm, and full without any sharp edges.
It would suit a professional player or an advanced student. Asking $4990.
PM me if you are interested to come and see and play the instrument. I’m near Currumbin on the Gold Coast.
