his is the the first of our line of lovely Thankful Strings Violins. A beautiful student instrument with a flamed maple back and neck and select spruce top. The B20 has a surprisingly clear and mature sound with good projection. Comes complete with wood bow and a real wood hard case - unheard of at this price. Like all of our instruments the B20 comes with a lifetime trade up to more advanced models so you don't need to worry about selling your old violin.
