A fine example out of the Roth Workshop, this 1927 VIR is based on a Guarneri del Gesu from 1732 that was loaned to Ernst Heinrich Roth to be meticulously studied and copied. The result is a powerful violin suitable for soloists while offering a captivatingly warm tone. A highly flamed two piece back with pin straight grain spruce top and a high quality red-orange oil varnish over a golden ground.
