When I was a child my parents gave me violin lessons but I lost interest and didn't stick with it. However, I have been playing guitar as a pro or semi-pro player since I was a teenager. Since I love bluegrass and play some fiddle tunes and chicken-pickin' guitar styles on my Tele I've thought about trying the fiddle as a second instrument. I'm even thinking that I might eventually be able to play a couple tunes with it in my country band although I do realize it's a very difficult instrument. Can someone recommend a full-sized model that is approiate for what I want to do or give me some pointers on what to look for in a descent violin? Maybe an electric or non-acoustical model would be appropriate for not driving my wife crazy? Thanks.
