Full-size professional grade violin signed by Master Luthier Pöpl Otto, made by him at Karl Höfner’s custom shop (Meisterwerkstatten) in Bubenreuth, Germany in 1996. In mint condition!

The label – which is hand signed by Pöpl Otto – reads (in translation from German):

  This instrument was made
  at the Master Workshop of Karl Höfner
  by Pӧpl Otto [hand signed]
  Bubenreuth 1996 [hand signed]
  Made in Germany
7-digit Karl Höfner serial number

The original tags – with the matching serial number – are attached.

The KH200, which is a copy of Guarneirus, is described in the catalogue of the time this instrument was made as a violin with “nicely flamed two-piece back, yellow-reddish varnish, artistic old shadings, imitation old.”

The violin features beautiful tone woods and shows precise workmanship. The two-piece back is strongly flamed, with narrow, regular stripes. The tone is medium-warm and rich. The instrument is resonant and responsive.

This is a vintage violin but it is in mint condition: defect-free structurally and perfect cosmetically. In addition to the two labels inside and the “Höfner” brand on the wood at the bottom, the violin comes with its two original tags. It appears to have no playing “mileage” on it. There are no cracks or repairs. There are virtually no visible scratches or blemishes. Please review the images carefully.

The violin comes with a premium accessory set and is equipped with a brand new Dominant string set. Play-ready.
