jacob von der lippe
copy of tellefsens guarneri
No rule without exception. For the past eleven years, I have focused on my own personal models. But when the Norwegian violin legend Arve Tellefsen asked me again this summer to make a copy of his “Tellefsen” del Gesú from 1742, it was difficult to say no. I made a copy of this special violin for him in 2002, but this time he said, “Make it look like my del Gesú, but sound like a von der Lippe.”
It is an honor to make this violin for a Norwegian violin legend.
