2010s Unmarked One-Piece-Back 4/4 Violin

This is a customer's fiddle and, as I recall, was a learner's instrument for a family member at the time. It's unmarked in any way but likely Chinese-made and about 10 or 15 years old and it looks essentially new. It features a really pretty one-piece back, nicely-figured maple used throughout the back, sides, and neck, and a good, light-amber color to the finish that highlights the grain.

It's in good order and our bowed guy Andy went through it and set it up nice and quick. I like the boxwood fittings and it comes with a good case and a decent bow with an interesting leather grip fit to it.

Repairs included: bridge fitting, fingerboard plane/level, and glorified setup work with new strings.

Condition notes: it's more-or-less a newer violin that has only been used a bit. I'm guesstimating it at about 10 or so years old. It's very clean, though the fingerboard shows its grain as my guy Andy leveled and dressed it during setup work.

It comes with: a good case and a "beater" bow with leather grip.
