So I was given a student violin a few years ago and just recently have I become interested in it and playing it. I researched the name which on the bow read, "R. Geipel" and I found some information but the only images I found were of a bow with the name "Richard Geipel" and most of the bows for auction were very old and mine looks fairly new, untouched even.
If this bow is anything is it genuine?
