This violin is a practice/travel violin. The instrument is comprised of four pieces which can be assembled and taken apart. Maple neck and body with a wenge fingerboard. I designed this for my own needs – a functional instrument, with weight and balance identical to an acoustic; but one that can fit easily in a suitcase, can be played quietly, but still operate as an electric instrument when needed. More images and descriptions are here.

This was my first instrument, made from slightly spalted yellow birch. This project was undertaken as an exercise in instrument make. More images and descriptions are here.
