It has a handsome two-piece flamed maple back and matching ribs. Lovely dark golden varnish.

Excellent tone for a violin in this price range, good projection and easy response across strings.

Restored cracks to front of violin, but not near soundpost or bassbar.

Despite the restoration, this is still a great sounding instrument suitable for Grade 8 students and beyond.
