Jay Haide L'Ancienne Violin 4/4 Guarneri Del Gesu Pattern

Jay Haide L' Ancienne Violin 4/4 Guarneri Del Gesu Pattern.  


This violin is an antiqued reproduction of Guarneri Del Gesu, handcrafted of aged, top-quality maple and spruce. The instrument has very responsive playability and a rich, complex tone quality.

  • Antiqued golden brown varnish
  • High quality ebony pegs and fingerboard precisely fit by Jarek Powichrowski, luthier
  • High quality Despiau bridge carved by Jarek Powichowski, luthier
  • Evah Pirazzi strings
  • Guarneri style chinrest

The Jay Haide Modele artistique à l'ancienne family of instruments was developed over many years of collaboration between violin makers Jay Ifshin and Haide Lin, who studied the varnish techniques of master European luthiers.

The distinctive appearance of these instruments is achieved by artful shading and antiquing of the specially formulated varnish to give each instrument the patina of age, so desired by both musicians and connoisseurs.

This Guarneri model aims to reproduce features and nuances of original models of these instruments, with meticulous attention to scroll and f-hole carving, top and back archings, and wear-patterns of the varnish.
