Went to a local string shop, "The String Project" in Palatine IL to have my viola checked out both for playing and by the luthier. I saw this hanging up and asked if I could take a picture of it to share with you. The body is apparently hollow and the craftsmanship suggests less than expert luthier creation (or home brew). Thought everyone here would appreciate it!

@JohnG -

Someone wanted to play pretty bad!  😄 

 

Did you find out anything or did you have to leave your Viola with the luthier?
