im interested to hear which makers/models are recommended for a left handed player.
my options so far are to get my local maker to convert a right handed violin i already own for $500australian, or to purchase a brand new left handed violin from overseas.
currently on ebay ive noticed an "Advanced Student - GEMS2" lefty for $278us (solid carpathian spruce top and maple body, a helmke left handed violin($69.95us - no description of wood used that i can see - low quality i would imagine though) and a chinese made "T19" make by a luthier called "liu xi" for $499.99 (including bow and case).
it seems like there is very little on offer in regards to lefty violins. any help would be much appreciated.
