finger board, bridge, pegs, minor scratches, and open seams are
acceptable. Moderate to major damage such as cracks, broken necks,
broken edges, corners, sound post splits, etc…, may either void the trade guarantee or
result in a reduction of the instrument’s value, at the sole
judgment of J.R. Judd Violins.

accepted at 50% of the original value if in good condition. The cost

This guarantee is fully transferable, provided

than that of the trade-in value.

including bows and instruments not originally purchased at J.R. Judd
