A fine violin made by our in-house luthier, Bryan Austin, who is a graduate from the Violin Making School of America in Salt Lake City, Utah. This instrument is absolutely gorgeous from scroll to end button. The sound is sweet, big, while maintaining an amazing balance of warm and bright.
The top is made from fine European spruce, complemented with European maple back and sides, and finished off with luxurious boxwood fittings by Tempel. You have to hear this one in person.
