Anyone have any input on Sofia instruments? I was considering purchasing the Wienawski copy (Guadignini) one. There are two dealers that carry Sofias, but the one I'm leaning towards is Shar. I looked in their catalog and their site, and the picture of the Wienawski has wood that looks fakish orange, with very fake looking lightly colored "ornaments" (chinrest etc.), is this how it's supposed to look? I'm in the $3000 to $5000 range of violins.
