The Scott Cao 600 violin is an upgraded version of the Scott Cao 500. The primary difference between the instruments is that the 600 features higher flamed woods and an upgraded varnish. The varnish on the violin has a modern Italian color style and uses a natural resin. This violin also features a hill-style chin rest which rests over the tailpiece. The 600 series violins are handmade by award winning luthiers and each instrument is meticulously graduated, rewarding the player with a powerful and refined tone. The instrument is built from Chinese and European maple, has an ebony fingerboard and fittings, Dominant strings, and 1 fine tuner on the tailpiece.
