    I agree with richntacoma -- but judging by the pics alone, it seems to be very carefully made, in aesthetic terms.

    A potential buyer would probably want, in addition to the provenance of the maker, at least one sound sample.

    Good luck with the sale!

    The build looks very clean. Are you the builder?

    Sorry, I should have specified in the original post.

    Yes, I am the builder, I trained as a violin maker at the school in Cremona, but I have also started building plucked instruments as well.

    As for sound samples, unfortunately I can't get to my recording equipment at the moment because of Covid restrictions here in Italy. I'll see if I can record something half-decent on my phone.

    Congrats on that build. It looks amazing. As for sound and recordings, you might be surprised at how easy it is to record a decent sample on your phone these days. Just make sure the microphone is not too far away.
