Hi, two questions regarding this viola: 1) does it come with accessories such as a case, bow, rosin? 2) can we trade this in for an upgrade later on? Thank you.

SHAR Answer:

Hello Marie! This viola does not come with a case, bow, or rosin and those will have to be purchases separately. However, it will be eligible for trade in credit once you're in need of the next size up. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
