Well, I bought a violin on ebay last week, just as an experiment, and I'm extremely surprised. The violin shipped from shanghai. The violin itself cost 4.00, shipping $58. I wasn't expecting this thing to sound good at all, and it got here today, and my jaw is dropped. I would put this violin in the $2,000-2,500 range. And the craftmanship is beautiful, I love the pegs, the portrait carved into the tailpiece.
I just cant shut up about this thing! For what cost me about 60 dollars, I got an ok bow, a very nice case, and great violin.
