    A violinist from south China's city of Guangzhou expects to break current Guinness World Records with his 1cm mini violin he made after seven years of hard work, the Guanghzou Daily reports.

    The mini violin made by 66-year-old senior violinist Chen Lianzhi, has got a 1-centimeter-long body, which is much smaller than the current Guinness record holder whose violin was about 2.2-cenitmeter size.

    Born into a family of musicians, Chen began playing music at age nine and is especially skilled at violin. He had already made a 3.55-centimeter violin seven years ago.

    "Compared with the common violins of 35.5-centimeter-long bodies, these mini violins, called ant's violins, are so small, but they consist of all the over thirty components of common violins," Chen told the Guangzhou Daily.

    Chen used a 0.1-milimeter drill point to shape a piece of maple the size of a thumbnail, and finally joined all the components together with glue.
    "Anyhow, the strings of the mini violin are so thin and it is not easy to play sound music." Chen admitted.

    This violin looks like a toy for children. It is a greatest invention from senior violinist Chen Lianzhi. It is amazing that its body has only 1cm length. Thanks for sharing information.
