The Oxford 4/4 Violin #OV-1 is a full-size violin with a hand-carved solid spruce top, and solid maple back, sides, and neck. Spruce is an ideal wood for the top of a violin since it is lightweight, longitudinally strong, and laterally flexible. It has an ebony fingerboard for a slick, fast playing quality. The Oxford 4/4 Violin #OV-1 also has a chinrest, pegs, and fine tuner tailpiece, so you will always sound impeccably in-tune. Your instrument looks striking with inlaid purfling and a golden-brown finish. The OV-1 also includes a feather weight case, so you can easily transport your instrument, without any unnecessary bulk. Also included is a Mongolian horsehair bow, for playing with good grip and smooth tone.
