every piece he finishes is absolutely classic. As the best luthier, Master Wang always takes such factors as the individual character and resonance

Hello Mr. Lu! I want to tell you that I am absolutely satisfied with the violin that you have sent me. When I first set my eyes upon the violin, I was stunned. The violin looked incredible. What's even more amazing is the sound. Every description that you gave is accurate. The violin is sweet, warm, well-balanced, and projects very well. I have tried violins that cost more than $5,000 and they don't play as well as Master Wang's violin. Master Wang's violins are truly affordable masterpieces. All of my expectations have been exceeded. I took a gamble and bought a violin from eBay;that gamble clearly paid off. I am very happy that I bought this violin. Perhaps in the future, I will buy more. One thing is for sure; I will be telling my friends about this wonderful violin. I am curious why the violin did not come with a label. I had hoped to have the label with Master Wang's signature. Master Wang is a true artist. His passion for violin making is evident in his work. I ask that you send me a label with Master Wang's signature so I can properly label my violin. An artist such as Master Wang deserves credit where it is due. Also, the label will be valuable when Master Wang's reputation increases and his violins appreciate in value. Once again, please send me a label with Master Wang's signature on it. Thank you very much, Mr. Lu! Tuan Nguyen
I received my viola yesterday and my luthier has put the soundpost and the tailpiece on today.
I love my viola, it's so beautiful, perfect for me. Master Wang has made a wonderful work.
I send many thanks to you and to Master Wang for all.
And I want to tell you that you are so professionnal Lu, it was a real pleasure to communicate with you.
I will surely buy another things to you in the future.
I wish you a very good continuation in your business Lu.
Best wishes from me,
Dear Mr Lu,
I have sold one of Master Wang Zhiguo's violin (item no: 320663143298) to one of my former violin teacher today. He is very impressed with the beautiful sound of the violin. He agrees to introduce more people and students to Master Wang's wonderful violins. I played the IPE Master bow you sent me today and was also very impressed with it. It is comparable with some of my other bows that cost a lot more. I hope to order more of these bows in the near future.
I hope to show another violin teacher at a music school here another of Mast Wang's violin soon. This teacher is a graduate from a music school in Shanghai and plays the gucheng as well and is currently looking for a good violin.
I am honoured to have my teacher to buy a violin from me that you recommended. My best regards to you and Master Wang!
Ever gratefully yours S.T
Hi again Mr Lu,
I just want to tell you that the violin that you recommended me and I bought from you is very very good and I could not really express in words just how satisfied I am with the violin.
Initially when I collected the violin from the Customs Office, I was a bit skeptical about the violin because it did not look very nice and it looked more like a poorly maintained antique violin. However, the moment I started tuning it and playing it at home, I totally fell in love with the playability and sound of the instrument.
My only regret is that I did not get this type of violin earlier by Master Wang Zhiguo when I started buying violins online. I have a small collection now including a S C and an antique French violin which cost quite a lot and yet do not sound as good as Master Wang's violin.
I look forward in purchasing more of Master Wang's violins to add to my collection in the near future. I also hope to perform on his violins in public whenever I have a chance and introduce his violins to some of the music schools here. Many of the music schools here sell European violins that cost many many times more and yet do not sound good. Some sell Chinese made violins but they are mostly factory made for beginners. There is a huge potential for affordable intermediate to advanced level violins here for people who prefer quality and affordability. I am not a businessman and not a professional violinist. However, I am so impressed with this violin that it will be a shame not to let more people listen and to know more about Master Wang's violins.
I hope to keep in touch. I just could not stop e-mailing you through hotmail now just to let you know I am more than pleased with this violin. Please send my warmest regards to Master Wang for me. This violin is one of the best purchase I ever made.
May you and Master Wang and both your families be well and happy. May both of you be blessed with great health and prosperity.

Hello Lu ! I just want to thank You for selling this fantastic violin to me and to give my honored greatings to master Wang for his great craftmanship !! If You write down Your adress in China I would like to send You 2 of my CD?s . Yours Ms , Professor and consertmaster.
The violin arrived on Friday. I took it home where I welcomed it. It was love at first sight. Beautiful in appearance, perfect in size and shape for me to hold. It had come a long way, coming from China. I live in dry high desert country and wanted to give it some time to slowly adapt before sharing with you my thoughts. Initially the sound seemed very locked up inside the body of the violin. Understandable. I played it for about 4 hours on Saturday. I have played it every morning and evening since then. It is opening up and showing its true colors. It voice is very appealing to me.
At first I used one of my other bows, but out of curiosity decided to try the one you sent. It works well with this violin. I changed the chin rest because I prefer to use a Flesch chin rest. I waited to order new strings to see what I thought might best compliment the violin as it now sounds. Some are on their way. I expect to put them on this weekend.
I have four other violins but I have to say this one has stolen my heart.
China is very special to me. I treasure having a top plate made from piece of spruce with so much history.
Thank you so much and thank Master Wang.
This little concert I did with your violin. I received great compliments on the sound. Bravissimo Lu
