This week I have had the joy of borrowing this hand crafted violin to photograph it. This is handmade by Lethbridge Musical Instruments. It features an Engelmann spruce top, sugar maple back, neck, and ribs, macassar ebony fingerboard and fittings, and black willow corner blocks and bass bar. As always, it's got a layer of his quartz-based ground coat, but this one received a specially-processed oil varnish which sets it (and its one-piece back) apart from anything he has done before. Also worth noting: this violin hasn't seen a single powertool over the course of its production. I couldn't resist the opportunity to get some product images of it, and I am so grateful to know some of the people I do. Thank you Taylor for the chance, and for the craftsmanship you provide.
