Here's a great student violin. You'll be pleased with the quality- especially for such a great price! This instrument is factory adjusted and strung up with D'Addario Prelude Strings. The purfling is real and properly inlaid, and the fingerboard, saddle, end button, nut, and pegs are all of pure ebony. It also comes with a standard Glasser tailpiece, chinrest, and a quality French bridge. You'll appreciate the great quality and set-up of this instrument above most cheaper student models that you can find. You'll also love the maple wood used on the sides and back, and the beautifully varnished spruce top. Great for your young, beginning violinist.
