This unlabeled 4/4 Century Strings violin has a beautiful tone that is rich, clear, and responsive.
The back is formed from a single piece of quarter-cut maple, marked by medium-width flame, which slants slightly downward from the treble side. The wood on the ribs and scroll is similar to that of the back. The grain of the two-piece spruce top is straight, narrow, and even.
The instrument is covered with a warm honey-brown varnish, over a pale golden-brown ground. It is heavily antiqued and shaded by the maker, and is in excellent condition.
Length – 35.6 cm
Upper Bouts – 16.7 cm
