jps Posted March 18 Report Share Posted March 18 I picked up a vintage instrument but need help determining if is it a 4/4 violin or 3/4 viola. It's overall length and body match a 4/4 violin, but it's abnormally wide. It appears to have an E string on it, but there isn't a fine tuner on it. Below are the dimensions. Overall length: 23 1/4" (59.05 cm), Body: 14 1/4" (36.195 cm), Upper bout: 6 5/8" (16.83 cm) at widest point, Lower bout: 8 3/8" (21.27 cm) widest, and Fingerboard: 10 3/8" (26.35 cm). Is it just an abnormally wide 4/4 violin? It doesn't fit in my regular violin case. Thanks for your assistance. jp Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
