A guy in my year at school is having a clear out and they were desperate to get rid of his mum's old violin. He was begging people to take it and even put a poster up 'Anyone want a free violin ask Jordan' haha.
Ok so, it's no use to me - i already have 2 violins, some of you may already know my belooveedddd Fidelio But being obsessed with violins i gladly accepted his offer lol.
It's in pretty good shape it looks brand new! (ok so in violin terms 'brand new' isnt a good thing but you know what i mean xD). Even if it is bright orange and the bridge is all wrong - huge gap between the d and a strings and tiny gap between the a and e strings!
But it's not even the quality of a stentor and i'll never ever play it. And i wont sell it as 1) it's worth very very little and 2) i could never accept something for free and go sell it.
I'm so tempted to turn it into an experimental violin, but i'm not sure i could bring myself to do anything damaging to any instrument! aaah
I'm really temped to paint it too
Cool eh but unfortunately i'm not much of an artist
Maybe i could do something like paint it white (if i could manage to cover the BRIGHT orange varnish) then paint some musical notes on, and use it as an ornament in my room...
i'm thinking crazy thoughts XD
