A Violin Made In Collaboration by Williams and Krutz, 2003
Rick Williams is an American inventor and master craftsman with over 50 years of woodworking experience based in Kansas. He began the RC Williams company in 2010 to focus on creating his own designs for specialized orchestral accessories using his background in advanced CNC machining but worked for KC Strings for a number of years prior to launching his own business. It was there that this single owner violin was entirely hand made by Anton Krutz and himself in 2003. As a point of reference, although this violin was made with the advancing but serious musician in mind, Krutz’ personal violins retail for $15,000.
This 13 year old violin has been well loved and regularly maintained, presenting in an excellent state less some rather serious wear to the varnish on the scroll. I find it charming, but if you would like this touched up and made to be like new, I would be happy to do so as part of its purchase and at no additional charge. It boasts a voice that will raise your eyebrows and have you nodding. Inquire to arrange a trial.
