The Stentor Messina is the first in Stentor's range of high-grade orchestral models. These are superb individually handcrafted instruments, carved from selected and figured tonewoods. The Stentor Messina violin is made in a specialist hand workshop within the Stentor factory, where the most skilled individual workers produce under the close supervision of a master maker, in a traditional luthier's environment that would be familiar to makers throughout the centuries. The result is a fine instrument with a superior finish and sound. The violin is carved from solid tonewoods and finished with a hand-applied traditional shellac varnish to complement the individual look of each instrument. All instruments are individually workshop fitted.
