Most Expensive Violin


The world’s most expensive instrument is this 250 year old violin.  It was played for the first time in 70 years in Moscow, March 21, 2008.


The Guarnerius del Gésu violin was bought at Sotheby’s in February.  It was played by Israeli virtuoso Pinchas Zuckerman.

Cost: $3.9 million.  Now that’s some sweet music.
