Three years and still not done?  Dwight Brown's VSA viola took only months.  After all Neil contributed here you would think it would have been completed sooner....and what is the status of Craig Tucker's tribute violin? 

hi Ernie-- we had the opportunity to showcase that viola at the VSA convention, if you recall, and that made the deadline more pressing.

On the fifth anniversary of Neil's passing, here are photos of the completed violin which will be presented to the Head of Strings at St Mary's Music School later this week.

One graphic artist, two amateur makers and 7 professional makers in the US and Europe were involved in getting the violin past the finish line.
