People do what they can. Everybody is doing the very best they can at any given moment. My friend
Michael N. picked up this little gem many years ago from a neighbor who had immigrated to the US from Poland. He was a violinist and played in the National Orchestra of Poland for some number of years prior to leaving the country. Now I have no way of verifying this, yet. My friend doesnt drive and is fully involved in the many aspects of his day to day life but has asked that I help him first acquire the provenance of this violin if it is available. Provided it is then warranted I will be assisting him in locating a buyer. He thinks it's from somebody named Strat-something or other........
By god the story was fantastic and I learned why many call this the perfect instrument. It wasnt a Strat but I found a new friend and realized I already had one walking beside me. Thank you MDN
