Famous violins for which a Musafia case was made.


A case identical to this one - or perhaps actually the one pictured - was made for Isaac Stern and his 1740 "del Gesù". Mr. Musafia is searching for it in order to possibly add it to his collection. Anyone with information about it's whereabouts is welcome to contact us.
