Hi there! I’m sorry your question hasn’t gotten any attention up to this point! I feel pretty confident in saying that well over 95% of us cannot afford to pay out-of-pocket for a high quality instrument. Almost any music shop you walk into will have some sort of in-house financing or rent-to-own option. I don’t fully know how international business would work for him, but I do know that Michael Sanchez also runs Superior Violins (http://www.superiorviolins.com) and does a great job helping people find creative ways to own good instruments. I have done business on three instruments now. It’s always a good experience. Give him a call or sent him a message. You might be surprised!
If that isn’t an option, just find a local violin shop, walk in, and start asking questions! 🙂
