Whether you're an improviser who's looking for a fretted violin to make intonation easier in high-volume situations where stage monitoring is less than ideal, or a guitarists who are looking to switch to or add the violin to their arsenal, this 6-string fretted Jordan is an exceptional choice.
John Jordan's violins are fretted traditionally, so your fingers go behind the frets, not on top of them as with some electric violins. If you're coming to the violin world from guitar-land, this can make the transition easier if your brain has a hard time overcoming the ingrained reflex to not land on top of the frets. 'Though Jordan uses jumbo fret wire, his fretted violins are still very easy to play. Even rapid slides up the neck are smooth and comfortable under the hand, and there's enough space to fret each note accurately well into the higher registers.
This fretted Jordan 6-string has an attractive high-gloss sunburst finish that really highlights the figure of this instrument's quilted maple body.
A Barbera Twin Hybrid violin bridge provides exceptional amplified tone, making this violin a great choice for amplified acoustic styles, and just about ideal for use with high-gain effects or in high volume situations.
Price includes a custom oblong hard shell case.
