John Juzek- Pisek, Czech Republic was a Czechoslovakian merchant and a violin maker. He worked in Prague in the 1900’s and exported many violins across the world, mostly to North America. His instruments are frequently copied by smaller German makers. His violins are often described as a Guarneri with a Stradivari scroll. Often being praised as the highest quality of the Czech instruments, they possess a pleasing, sought-after tone.
The master art model was the very best instrument that the Juzek shop produced made by the master maker. Often made using the finest materials available.
This fine viola made in 1933 has a comfortable length of 403mm (full size) and is made in a Guarnerius pattern. Ebony fittings with brass diamond inlay.
