This electric violin was made for Joan Renne, an exceptionally talented violin teacher. It was made from a beautiful piece of burl maple with both birds eye and curl present. The fingerboard and tail piece were made from Mountain Mahogany. The pegs and the inlays were made from thin slices of end grain of a mountain mahogany log that Joan had been storing for many years. When we cut into it, we found that it had been infested with insects that had bored holes throughout the entire branch. We thought it was useless until we saw what a spectacular pattern had been made viewing it from the end grain.
