This is a special edition model. Once they are gone, they are gone forever.

The legend goes...

Nicolo Bussotti, based on the real-life luthier Antonio Stradivari, supposedly mixes the blood of his deceased beloved wife into the varnish of what is to be his most precious creation. It spans four centuries and five countries as it tells the story of a mysterious red-coloured violin and its many owners. The instrument, made in Cremona in 1681 with a future forecast by tarot cards, makes its way to Montreal in 1997, where an appraiser identifies it and it goes to auction.

The story was told as a movie made in 1998, but what if it wasn't just a movie?...

The film spans four centuries, weaving together a story of a blood-stained violin's numerous owners in its 200-year absence from society. While these owners of the violin — as well as the instrument's famed bloody dye — are fictional, the true story behind the Stradivarius "Red Violin" is compelling, nonetheless.
