    My violin was appraised at $1300 12 years ago. I found it's twin on-line recently for $2000. The best part is that I bought it for $400 and fixed it up for an additional $100. It was quite a deal, but about all I could afford at 15! I bought it with my after school job.

    I bought mine with my job,too. Everyone I show it to ask "how much did your parents pay for it?" I worked at Dunkin&#39; Donuts for a year for almost minimum wage to get it. By the way, my last day of my first job ever is August 21st.

    My 1st job was really pathetic ... I folded sheets and towels in a hotel laundry room&#33; I only worked 16 hours a week. When I was 16, I got a much more prestigious job at Burger King ... believe it or not, better pay and better company. I used my Burger King job to buy a suspension violin case, they were the newest thing in cases, then&#33; I still have the original case to my violin somewhere. It looks like a small, black coffin. Maybe I should take a picture and post it sometime&#33;

    Yeah, that would be cool. I&#39;m interseted in seeing it now. I used to get a little over 20 hours a week, but since the manager knows I&#39;ll be quitting soo, I work a total of six hours in the next two weeks&#33; My last day, I will be bringing my supersoaker full of coffee as spray everyone who works there. It is one of the huge ones&#33; B) We do crazt things like that all the time. It was really fun working there.

    My violin was &#036;1200. I got him for my Christmas gift from my mom. Price wasn&#39;t the issue when I was looking for a new violin earlier in December. I picked him over a much more expensive violin, heh.
    Bach that thang up.

    Rocca violins are all built in the middle of 19th century?

    Your Rocca's name is "Alard" maybe?

    I must be damn lucky! I'm nowhere near a professional player and yet I got an excellent quality violin worth about AU$ 6000.

    mines $2000, but it's 220 years old and has 5 huge cracked that have been patched up so i could be worth more if it was in better condition.
