A fine modern viola by St. Louis area luthier, Shaun Fosdick. Completed in 2020, this viola is based on a Brescian model and has a 16.25" back length. Shaun likes to incorporate a variety of North American tonewoods, often local to his region. This viola is no different - the ribs are made from a local Missouri hickory variety, which add a unique look. The back is alder (looks similar to a poplar) and the top red spruce was also cut locally. Finally, the neck/scroll were made from maple.
