Is this a Jackson Guldan?

Edited: March 1, 2018, 11:46 PM · Bought an old unlabeled violin recently. Half the fun has been trying to figure out what, when, where it mas made. After reading about roughly-made Jackson Guldan violins, I wonder if that's what I have. Any thoughts?
P.S. I added the tailpiece, chinrest and new bridge.

They made several grades, that would be the base model.
