Like most oldtime banjo players I thought I would learn to play the fiddle.
I bought this, 2006 Lebron Batey, Guarneri Copy Fiddle, new from the builder.
But like most oldtime banjo players I didn't succeed in learning to play.

So as they say ... "My loss is your gain".
Paid $4000 in 2006 and willing to let it go at a healthy discount today.

This is an exceptional fiddle from atop Sand Mountain, Alabama.
100 - 150 year old, air dried maple was used in this third of a series of five special fiddles.
The result is a professional level instrument with tremendous volume and projection.

The fiddle is in as-new condition.

The label reads:
Lebron Beaty
Copy of Guarneri
No. 57
Made in Sylvania, Alabama.

Instrument Specifications:
* 100 - 150 year old, air dried, curly maple, one piece back, sides and neck.
* Tight grain, Engelmann spruce top.
* Ebony fingerboard, tailpiece, chin rest and button.
* Fine tuners on all four strings.
* Set-up with "fiddle bridge" and "modest" strings (manufacturer unknown to me).

* Two used bows in good working order.
* A used, yet very serviceable, Core case.

The builder was interviewed by the Rome News-Tribune (Georgia) during the building of this instrument. See More info URL below.
