need advice in purchasing a violin.
i am purchasing my 12 year old daughters first full size violin. three choices currently at hand are as follows.
the first has been discussed in a discussion string since 2004 and is stamped. " ernst heinrich roth, markneukirchen 1924 copy of 1732 joseph guarneri" priced $6500.00
the second is a violin labeled "wilhelm bruckner 1927, erfurt" priced at $ 7000.00 and
the third is labeled "prosper , rue saint george, mirecourt dated from just before the turn of the 20th century and is priced at $ 6500.00
i read the discussion string on the roth. the price of the roth based on the discussion string appears reasonable.
my daughter likes all 3 violins. her violin teacher has not yet seen them. i would appreciate any advice or comments anyone may have.
for this price range are ther any other violins makers i should specifically consider.
