    Are you sure it's not a viola? Whatever instrument it is, it looks very nice.

    Beautiful Les. For this old redneck it would be a fiddle.

    Jim,

    Just make sure you paint the tube black as sometimes the QC is not good enough for a tight fit and the brass tube will show through the gaps between the inlay pieces.

    Above the Mason-Dixon line it is a violin.
    Below the M-D line it is a fiddle.
    Either way, very beautiful pen. Somebody will love.
