Hey Guys,

We have had this electric violin from a trade for a while but it's just been sitting in storage. We are putting it up for sale. Does anyone know what brand this is?

I did not see an exact match, but the Vector Prodigy has the same peg box scroll design, utilizes steam tonewood plates, and makes use of similar fasteners.  This suggests that they may have come from the same maker.  The Vector is made in Nova Scotia.

Here is a picture of a similar one that I found. It actually has a logo. Anyone recognize that label.

It actually sounds and plays great. A lot like my old Zeta jazz fusion violin.
