Stratton Skull 5 Standard electric violin, Driftwood
To bring the compelling design of his popular Skull violin to a wider audience, maker Jeff Stratton has streamlined his production process, eliminating the hand carving that made each previous Skull unique and simplifying the scroll design. The result is a striking and attractive instrument at a much more affordable price.
The death's-head shape and rich, focused tone from the Barbera Twin Hybrid transducer system retain most of the look and all of the sound quality of the original custom Stratton Skull violins. This 5-string Stratton Skull Standard has his popular Driftwood finish on the body and flattened "scroll", with a medium amber, slightly antiqued look to the back of the neck.
