16" Hugh Withycombe 2009 Viola


A fantastic opportunity to own a Contemporary instrument made in Canberra and Oberlin, USA by Hugh Withycombe. 

Containing a two piece highly figured back with matching ribs, the quality of this instrument highlights the merit of purchasing a contemporary luthier's work.

Although a larger sized Viola, it is finely made and lightweight. This viola boasts a deep and bold sound.
