POPULAR SHAR STAFF QUESTION
From ANN ARBOR, MI

Asked On: 06/23/2016

Could you describe the blemish? Will this viola still work for me even though it is blemished?

SHAR Answer:

Blemished instruments are brand new, but they are being sold at a discounted price because they exhibit some sort of slight imperfection. These blemishes are cosmetic only and will not affect the sound or play-ability of the instrument. For more information regarding this particular viola, please contact the SHAR Violin Shop at 1-866-742-7270.
