Cremona Violins are the industry standard for an all solid carved violin at a reasonable price. Cremona violins are perfect for both classical violin studies and for good old-time fiddling. Each Cremona violin is crafted from the finest materials and mated with the crafting ability of skilled luthiers. Finding an all solid, hand-carved, violin outfit using premium aged, flamed and book-matched woods has been unheard of until now. Now thanks to Saga, the SV-1240 is an amazing instrument that all can afford. The Cremona SV-1240 features a solid hand carved and graduated spruce top with a two piece, solid flecked flamed maple back and flamed maple sides! Each SV-1240 has a hand inlaid ebony purfling and an elegant vintage look and feel. The SV-1240 from Cremona comes complete with a Travelight TL-35 suspension case and a J. LaSalle LB-19 brazilwood bow!
