|The eBay Super-Bargain Violin|
BIG DAY -- Right on time!
|I knew at once what the package was. The distinctive shape was unmistakeable (well, OK, the word "VIOLIN" stamped on the box helped too ...)|
|Black canvas covered hard case. Adequate external zipper compartment. Not elegant, but functional.|
|OK, LET'S SEE WHAT'S
|Hmmm ... violin with four strings, tailpiece with built-in fine tuners, and center-mounted chinrest attached; one bow wrapped in plastic; bridge, wrapped in white paper, stuffed under the tailpiece ...|
|... generic rosin in orange plastic container, two straps for the case, two spare strings (A and E). That's everything. And nope, no setup instructions anywhere.|
