Model is close to the 'Long Strad' pattern, with the slightly steeper arching and confident, masculine
scroll typical of many Scottish makers of the period. A good-looking fiddle, with broad, earthy tones matching its appearance, it projects well, having good balance and enough power to be useful to the orchestral or traditional player.
