Perfect for a beginner. I paid over 500 British Pounds for it but selling it for $700 Canadian OBO. This violin is a solid carved Sentor 4x4 Graduate Intermediate model and is in Mint Condition. It comes with everything a student would need. 2 rosin, extra strings which I purchased in Munich for 48Eur, a shoulder rest as well as Snark tuner so you know you are hitting the right key. I bought this as I was going to take lessons and my teacher decided to move before I had a chance to take lessons.
