This is a masterful example of Justin Derazey’s work. This exemplary model is highly attractive and shows at a glance the master craftsman’s hand. The wood used throughout is of top choice, quality, and character. The back is formed from two pieces of handsome maple, and the top of straight and even grained spruce of superb quality. Exquisitely playable, the varnish is of a rich, reddish shade. The violin is in pristine condition and possesses a voice of fixating and fascinating beauty.
