Hypothetical: You have a violin in the $10K range an seek to buy a violin in the $20K range. You cannot simply do without an instrument while you attempt to sell your current instrument. How do you purchase your next violin when the money is currently tied up? Save the full amount and pay cash for the upgrade, and gain a profit when you finally sell your instrument? Save for the difference and put the rest on a credit card, paying interest until you sell the first violin? Take out a loan? Ideally, wouldn't it be nice to trade your violin in when you find the new love of your life? What do most violinists do?
