Radically reduced to $800 -- I need the space it occupies - Upton Hawkes plywood. Discontinued model. All seams are tight. No rattles. I'm using it to experiment with strings. Sporting Evah Pirazzi strings at the moment, Revolution Solo pickup and 'docking station' from Gollihur and padded gig bag. Well abused for 14 years with nicks and dings, chewed up bridge and violin corner damage. Hauled in a Honda Accord and it shows. Can be played as is if you're not particular about visuals. Will need to see your luthier if you want to make it somewhat presentable. Pickup in Forth Worth area. It really does sound good. Stickers/decals have been removed.
