"Swimmin' Upstream" is an awesome 4 string acoustic violin. It is yet another example of a great sounding fiddle made from alternative woods. The back and sides are made from Makore, and the top is made from local Western Red Cedar.
The Makore neck was split and laminated with ebony and maple, an ivory eye was inserted. The custom tail piece was carved from a high quality ebony as was the finger board. This violin sports an ivory nut and saddle.
