Ok I recently won at auction a Paige's Music 15" Viola

It was missing it Fingerboard, bridge, chin rest and strings. So I was actually bidding on the case that looked to be in good shape.

I was surprised when it got here and I got a good look at it, it was in rather good condition. So I decided to use some spare parts I had lying around ( I canniblised my old Cresent violin) using the maple fingerboard and strings, which was strung as a viola before it fell apart. And a violin bridge blank.

In short time I had a functioning viola. Not correctly repaired but functional.

My question now is who really made this viola as Paige's Music is a school orchestra

supplier.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

Impossible to know by looking at those pictures, but if you want to find out, why not contact Paige's Music.
