… please excuse me for a moment, whilst I pop out to get my violinâ€¦
A friend of mine plays the hardingfele (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardanger_fiddle). I once asked him how much his instrument is worth. Turned out it's more than a 100 000 NOK (10 000 Euros). It is of course a 100 year old device.
pibbuR whose instrument (the electric guitar) cost him only 16 000 NOK (1 600 Euros), probably because it's got only 7 strings.
