Absolutely stunning. How does it play? Was it difficult to set up all the electronics? You’ve done an amazing and inspiring job.

This looks like one the nicest wood work I’ve seen! A truly marvelous piece! Great job.

Spectacular. That is simply stunning. As a lousy violinist myself, I can tell you that you don’t need to be good to enjoy it. You just need an empty house :)

That’s quite the unique violin. Excellent job on the shaping and finishing… it looks like a great instrument.

Fantastic violin. If you’re into electric violin music, you should check out Caryn Lin. You can see and hear her here.

After you learn to play, you may find tweeks here and there that would be better for playability. Should be interesting.

Well done my friend. I’m interested in the electrics as well. Can it be used with headphones? The loved ones of beginning fiddlers think headphones are a pretty good idea.
