    Full description

    The two-piece top of Italian spruce from Val di Fiemme shows a regular, beautiful medium-width grain pattern through the entire plate. Back, ribs, neck and scroll are all made with a fine flamed maple, all covered with a shiny and deep coloured red-brown varnish, very characteristic of Fantin's works. This violin is an excellent example of high-quality contemporary Italian violin making.
