Hello and greetings to you, my dear customers. I am delighted to welcome you to my eBay store, where each fine instrument was tested and carefully
picked from having been fully handmade & by a skilled luthier practicing the painstaking but proven centuries-old methods.After years of comparision
among many a workshop in Beijing, now I decide to present you with these instruments crafted in 4 outstanding workshops. Hopefully they can arouse
your interest and delight you.
She (4/4 violin) was picked from Beijing Wang Zhiguo's Violin workshop, which has a history of 25 years and owned by our luthier, Master Wang. A true
artisan luthier,He traveled to Italy for further Violin-Making study and returned 3 years later. He does not make many instruments within a year, though
every piece he finishes is absolutely classic. As the best luthier, Master Wang always takes such factors as the individual character and resonance
of each of different wood, making adjustments in the course of construction to ensure a beautiful sound rather than simply adhering to a standard of length,
arch, width, and what not. This violin has a great playability, loud, powerful, round, well-balanced, clear sound.

I have received beautiful violin that I have buy from you and it is Stradivari 1716 Messiah made by Master Wang.
It looks a lot better then on pictures, and sound is great, exactly as you have described it!
This is my third violin that I have buy from you and all of them are great sounding ones but this one i like the most.
I’m glad that I have bought it, and I have to thank you for your kind suggestion.
I have to give you my best compliments as you are truly best eBay violin seller and your violins looks, plays and sounds great.
I received my viola yesterday and my luthier has put the soundpost and the tailpiece on today.
I love my viola, it's so beautiful, perfect for me. Master Wang has made a wonderful work.
I send many thanks to you and to Master Wang for all.
And I want to tell you that you are so professionnal Lu, it was a real pleasure to communicate with you.
I will surely buy another things to you in the future.
I wish you a very good continuation in your business Lu.
Best wishes from me,
Dear Mr Lu,
I have sold one of Master Wang Zhiguo's violin (item no: 320663143298) to one of my former violin teacher today. He is very impressed with the beautiful sound of the violin. He agrees to introduce more people and students to Master Wang's wonderful violins. I played the IPE Master bow you sent me today and was also very impressed with it. It is comparable with some of my other bows that cost a lot more. I hope to order more of these bows in the near future.
I hope to show another violin teacher at a music school here another of Mast Wang's violin soon. This teacher is a graduate from a music school in Shanghai and plays the gucheng as well and is currently looking for a good violin.
I am honoured to have my teacher to buy a violin from me that you recommended. My best regards to you and Master Wang!
Ever gratefully yours
Hi again Mr Lu,
I just want to tell you that the violin that you recommended me and I bought from you is very very good and I could not really express in words just how satisfied I am with the violin.
Initially when I collected the violin from the Customs Office, I was a bit skeptical about the violin because it did not look very nice and it looked more like a poorly maintained antique violin. However, the moment I started tuning it and playing it at home, I totally fell in love with the playability and sound of the instrument.
My only regret is that I did not get this type of violin earlier by Master Wang Zhiguo when I started buying violins online. I have a small collection now including a S C and an antique French violin which cost quite a lot and yet do not sound as good as Master Wang's violin.
I look forward in purchasing more of Master Wang's violins to add to my collection in the near future. I also hope to perform on his violins in public whenever I have a chance and introduce his violins to some of the music schools here. Many of the music schools here sell European violins that cost many many times more and yet do not sound good. Some sell Chinese made violins but they are mostly factory made for beginners. There is a huge potential for affordable intermediate to advanced level violins here for people who prefer quality and affordability. I am not a businessman and not a professional violinist. However, I am so impressed with this violin that it will be a shame not to let more people listen and to know more about Master Wang's violins.
I hope to keep in touch. I just could not stop e-mailing you through hotmail now just to let you know I am more than pleased with this violin. Please send my warmest regards to Master Wang for me. This violin is one of the best purchase I ever made.
May you and Master Wang and both your families be well and happy. May both of you be blessed with great health and prosperity.
Hello Lu !
I just want to thank You for selling this fantastic violin to me and to give my honored greatings to master Wang for his great craftmanship !!
If You write down Your adress in China I would like to send You 2 of my CD?s .
Yours Ms , Professor and consertmaster.
The violin arrived on Friday. I took it home where I welcomed it. It was love at first sight. Beautiful in appearance, perfect in size and shape for me to hold. It had come a long way, coming from China. I live in dry high desert country and wanted to give it some time to slowly adapt before sharing with you my thoughts. Initially the sound seemed very locked up inside the body of the violin. Understandable. I played it for about 4 hours on Saturday. I have played it every morning and evening since then. It is opening up and showing its true colors. It voice is very appealing to me.
At first I used one of my other bows, but out of curiosity decided to try the one you sent. It works well with this violin. I changed the chin rest because I prefer to use a Flesch chin rest. I waited to order new strings to see what I thought might best compliment the violin as it now sounds. Some are on their way. I expect to put them on this weekend.
I have four other violins but I have to say this one has stolen my heart.
China is very special to me. I treasure having a top plate made from piece of spruce with so much history.
Thank you so much and thank Master Wang.
