Bought new 1/28/02, after my teacher recommended it over a number of other bows I had obtained for trial. It has seen less than 20 hours' use and is in excellent condition. As a student, I wanted a bow I would not soon outgrow, and I feel this bow was perfect in that regard. Unfortunately, health problems have forced me to give up arco (and maybe pizz -- we'll see), so this beautiful bow is looking for a good home. Made from fine, high-density pernambuco Pure sterling silver mountings Ebony frog with abalone slide Drawn with premium white horse hair Wrapped with sterling silver wire and leather The bow will be shipped via priority mail as soon as payment is received at no additional cost. Alternatively, expedited shipping can be arranged for an additional charge. Pay by check or money order. Here are a couple photos: E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thanks for looking!
