Overview

Its flamed-maple top, f-holes, and shape make the Wood Violins Nashville a great electric violin for fiddle players who need to be heard in high-volume settings.

A chambered, semi-hollow top and Wood TruTone pickup ensure that the Nashville's warm, rich amplified tone lives up to the promise of its good looks.

Lightweight and familiar in feel, the Nashville feels comfortable yet contemporary, with a slight asymmetry to the shape and Wittner Finetune pegs for ease of tuning and stability.

This particular 5-string Nashville is finished in a gorgeous, saturated blue transparent finish. There are two tiny dings on the edge of the lower bout on the treble side (see photos). The violin is discounted $50, to compensate for these minor finish flaws.

The Nashville is the newest model from the folks at Wood Violins. Combining traditional design with modern, contemporary elements, this is an electric violin with looks that will appeal to the traditional or country fiddler. Its comfortable feel, light weight, and exceptional tone make it a great addition to the arsenal of any electric violinist.

The Nashville's sound is a product of its chambered body and the Wood Violins TruTone pickup. Paired with a good acoustic amplifier, the Nashville's amplified tone is full and warm, with rich, resonant bass and sweet, singing treble -- the E string is brilliant, but not harsh. While not as powerful or full as the sound of the Barbera pickups found on other Wood Violins models, the open, ringing tone of the TruTone pickup makes the Nashville's sound more like that of an acoustic violin, for a natural fiddle tone.

The luthiers at Wood Violins have done a great job with the design of the Nashville. The string spacing and width of the neck are comfortable for the left hand, and 'though the bridge curvature is a little flatter in the middle, it's easy to get around all five strings with the bow.

The Nashville's streamlined, semi-hollow body ensure that it's very light in weight. Combined with its mostly-traditional shape, that makes it extremely comfortable and easy to play. Equipped with Wittner Finetune pegs, tuning the Nashville is a breeze, and it stays in tune through changes in temperature and humidity.
