THIS IS AN ANTQUE E. MARTIN COPY OF AMATI 4/4 VIOLIN FRESH OUT OF A WASHINGTON DC AREA ESTATE ATTIC. IT HAS A FLAMED BACK & SIDES. IT STILL RETAINS THE MAKER'S PAPER LABEL INSIDE THE BODY (SEE PHOTOS). THE INSTRUMENT COMES IN A VINTAGE PERIOD VIOLIN HARD CASE. THE INSTRUMENT HAS THE ORIGINAL PERIOD TAIL STOP AND BRIDGE THAT WERE FOUND IN THE CASE WITH IT. THE VIOLIN BODY MEASURES APPROX. 14" LONG. THE VIOLIN IS APPROX. 23 1/2" LONG OVERALL. THE VIOLIN IS NOT ROTTED, BROKEN UP, WARPED UP, CHOPPED UP OR MODIFIED. I DO NOT FEEL ANY LOOSE WOOD. THE NECK IS ROCK SOLID ON THE BODY. THE PEG HEAD IS NOT CRACKED OR REPAIRED. ALL TUNERS ARE SOLID AND TURN FINE. PLEASE SEE ALL PHOTOS BELOW. THE FLAMED BACK & SIDES ARE VERY ATTRACTIVE. I HAVE NOT POLISHED UP OR TAMPERED WITH ANYTHING. IT'S BEING OFFERED WITH NO WARRANTIES AS AN ANTIQUE STRING INSTRUMENT FROM A WASHINGTON DC AREA ESTATE. DUE TO BOX SIZE, THIS ITEM WILL BE SHIPPED IN THE LOWER 48 STATES VIA FULLY INSURED UPS. PLEASE NOTE: SHIPPING TO ALASKA, HAWAII, APO OR P.R. WILL HAVE TO BE VIA AIRMAIL & WILL COST A BIT MORE THAN NORMAL UPS IN THE LOWER 48 STATES. THE INDICATED SHIPPING/PACKING COST INCLUDES PRO PACKING BY THE UPS STORE. IT'S BEING OFFERED FRESH OUT OF THE ESTATE & AS PICTURED HERE. 


                                                                                                                               ** NEVER A RESERVE ** 


ALL ITEMS I OFFER ARE FROM NUMEROUS EAST COAST ESTATES (MOSTLY FROM MARYLAND, WASHINGTON DC, VIRGINIA, NEW JERSEY AND PENNSYLVANIA). THEY ARE OBTAINED THROUGH CONSIGNMENT OR ESTATE LIQUIDATION PURCHASE. I HAVE BEEN A PROFESSIONAL ESTATE PERSONAL PROPERTY CONSIGNMENT & LIQUIDATION LLC FOR OVER 12 YEARS. I AM NOT A "YARD SALER" OR A "PICKER".  YOU ARE SEEING ITEMS RIGHT OUT OF THE ESTATES. I DO NOT TAMPER WITH ITEMS, POLISH UP ITEMS OR ALTER THEM IN ANY WAY. I WANT BIDDERS TO VIEW THEM AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO WHEN THEY CAME FROM THE ESTATES. ALL ITEMS ARE BEING OFFERED AS FINAL SALES FROM ESTATE LIQUIDATION WITH ALL WEAR OF A USED VINTAGE ITEM. I WILL ONLY CALL AN ITEM MINT IF I TRULY BELIEVE THAT IT'S IN MINT CONDITION. I WILL ONLY CALL AN ITEM RARE OR SCARCE IF I TRULY BELIEVE IT TO BE SO. THE ITEMS YOU SEE HERE ARE NOT BEING OFFERED LOCALLY AT THE SAME TIME. NO WORRIES, I WILL NOT END AN AUCTION EARLY TO GET MORE MONEY FOR AN ITEM LOCALLY. ONCE AN ITEM IS UP, IT STAYS RUNNING UNTIL THE AUCTION ENDS (UNLESS I MAKE A BAD DESCRIPTION ERROR & HAVE TO END THE AUCTION TO FIX THE PROBLEM & THEN RE-LIST IT.)  ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD TO THE WINNING BIDDER AT THE AMOUNT THEY WON IT FOR. I NEVER REFUSE COMPLETION OF A TRANSACTION BASED ON WHAT AN ITEMS SELLS FOR. IF A VALUABLE ITEM HAPPENS TO GO SUPER CHEAP, YOU GET IT CHEAP. 
MY AUCTIONS ARE STRAIGHT FORWARD AND THEY FOLLOW THROUGH. I USE PLAIN BACKGROUNDS AND CLEAR FONTS. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN FLUFFY BORDERS, FANCY BACKGROUNDS, OVERBLOWN HYPE WORDING OR OVERBLOWN LETTERING FONTS TO PROMOTE PHONY HYPE IN ATTEMPT TO MAKE AN ITEM APPEAR MORE SPECTACULAR THAN IT REALLY IS. I WANT BUYERS TO SEE AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO WHAT I AM SEEING WHEN THE ITEM WAS ACQUIRED. I DO NOT USE THE DISTRACTION OF OVER-FLUFFED ADVERTISING TO CAUSE A CARELESS EMOTIONAL REACTION TO IMPULSE BID. COLLECTORS PLEASE DO NOT WORRY. MY ITEMS WILL NOT DISAPPEAR PART WAY THROUGH THE AUCTION. I CANNOT END AUCTIONS EARLY FOR THE "WHAT WILL YOU TAKE FOR IT NOW" OR "WHAT IS YOUR BUY IT NOW PRICE" EMAILS. THE ESTATES USUALLY WANT STRAIGHT THROUGH AUCTIONS. I HATE RESERVES. THEY ARE PURE SILLINESS. I NEVER PUT A RESERVE ON ANYTHING. OCCASIONALLY, I DO USE A "BUY IT NOW OR BEST OFFER" FORMAT IF THE ESTATE REQUESTS IT. 

I HOPE ALL OF MY ITEMS WILL GO TO PEOPLE WHO WILL ENJOY THEM. IF THE WINNING BIDDER HAS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH AN ITEM AFTER RECEIVING IT, PLEASE EMAIL ME BEFORE FILING A BUYER COMPLAINT. I WILL PROMPTLY TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM IF I DID MAKE A GROSS ERROR IN DESCRIPTION. IF AN ITEM IS RETURNED, THE BUYER PAYS RETURN SHIPPING. 
I CANNOT ACCEPT RETURNS FOR BUYER'S REMORSE. I CANNOT ACCEPT RETURNS FOR FALSE or FRIVOLOUS COMPLAINTS FILED IN AN ATTEMPT TO MASK BUYER'S REMORSE. PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE THE ITEM HAS ENDED. I CANNOT CANCEL TRANSACTION FOR QUESTIONS ASKED AFTER THE ITEM HAS ENDED. I CANNOT ACCEPT RETURNS FOR ITEMS THAT HAVE BEEN BROKEN, TAKEN APART, ALTERED OR TAMPERED WITH IN ANY WAY BUY THE BUYER. 
  

I SHIP WITHIN 5 DAYS AFTER CLEARED PAYMENTS ARE RECEIVED. I ALWAYS TRY TO PACK MULTIPLE SMALL ITEMS IN ONE BOX TO SAVE THE WINNING BIDDER A BIT ON THE SHIPPING/PACKING COST AS LONG AS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO W/O RISK OF BREAKING ITEMS BY JAMMING THEM IN ONE BOX. PLEASE ALLOW ME TO SEND AN EBAY INVOICE EMAIL BEFORE PAYING THE NIGHT AN ITEM ENDS. THIS ALLOWS ME TO SEND A COMBINED INVOICE FOR ALL ITEMS IN ONE BOX. I NEVER STACK FULL SHIPPING COSTS FOR MULTIPLE ITEMS ON TOP OF ONE ANOTHER TO MAKE MORE MONEY. I SHIP ALL SMALL ITEMS IN THE USA VIA USPS PRIORITY MAIL W/ DEL CONF. ALL ITEMS OVER $200 ARE SHIPPED WITH A SIGNATURE REQUIRED UPON RECEIPT. I DO NOT SHIP USPS PARCEL POST AT ALL. I SHIP ALL LARGER & HEAVIER ITEMS IN THE CONTINENTAL USA VIA FULLY INSURED UPS GROUND. I SHIP ALL ITEMS INTERNATIONALLY VIA USPS GLOBAL PRIORITY FOR TRACKING & SELLER PROTECTION. I DO NOT SHIP ANY INTERNATIONAL ITEMS VIA USPS 1ST CLASS AIRMAIL DUE TO LACK OF TRACKING. NO EXCEPTIONS.
