This viola, a modern unlabeled late 20th century Czech instrument, is a piece of unmistakeable individuality, that was crafted in the style of Italian violas. The soundholes and the elegant purfling of this viola are tastefully executed and examples of quality craftsmanship; the small, expressive viola scroll is an elegant work full of character. Richly applied oil varnish, of a beautiful, orange-brown color covers the well selected tonewoods that were selected for this viola. Our luthier thoroughly worked over and set up this undamaged Czech viola, so we can offer it in perfect condition and immediately ready to play. We recommend the viola's warm, precise sound, that is quite responsive and well-balanced, with a bright character and beautiful resonance.
