Holstein Bench Strad 1/2
This little violin brings joy into my home. I am still breaking it in and cannot believe that there is the possibility of it sounding any better. It is very difficult to put down...I don't want to do anything else! Thank you Michael...I appreciate your assistance in finding this 1/2 violin for me. Beautiful does not do this instrument justice.
