This Violin is in on consignment and is in excellent condition. It does not have any label in it, so our best guess based on how it was built, the types of woods and finish used etc, that is was a custom hand built instrument. Probably built in Canada and was never marketed. It has a deluxe ABS hardshell flight case included, and the light alloy tailpiece has all 4 fine tuners for easy tuning. It has a solid spruce top, and what appears to be a laminate maple back and sides, ebony tuning pegs and ebony fingerboard.
