A musical masterpiece is on the market in Chicago, and it's going for $18 million.

The 18th century violin was made by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu.

Experts say it would be the most expensive instrument of all time.

The British owner of the 269-year-old violin has held firm to his asking price.

So far, it has received the attention of plenty of potential buyers.

A Russian buyer snatched up another Guarneri masterpiece for $10 million last year.
