    Default What do you think ? Bowlback

    Anyone able to guess the maker ? From the photos it looks pretty good. Not a very exspensive way to dive into the classical world ?

    I would say Probably Suzuki 1970s. If the brand name is not Suzuki, it could be Conqueror or Kent or a host of others but still built by Suzuki and prob identical to this one. I had one like this one and it was OK but the tone was sort of dead. They were too heavily built.

    "Conqueror or Kent". Amazing.
