Amelia was strung up and played for the first time by Cecelia Archeleta, long time friend of Violinisto, on Thursday, the 7th. This violin is a variant based on the Cremonese Strad.  . For a brand new violin, the instrument had a full rich and somewhat dark sound. A new soundpost and some minor tweaking, along with a new set of strings, and she'll be ready to go. Photo coming tonight.
