I am currently trying out a violin bow made by Emile-Auguste Ouchard in 1945, Paris. The bow is fantastic and I am seriously considering buying it. There is only one issue with it. The bow has a repaired crack at the frog which you can see from the picture below.They are asking $18,000 for the bow. Do you guys think it is overpriced given its condition? Doesn't the crack reduce the value of the bow by a lot?
