A superb artist-quality viola by master luthier Colin G. Nicholls, London, constructed during his years at the Hill workshop and bearing the original Hill label.


 After an eleven year apprenticeship and tenure with W.E. Hill and Sons, Mr. Nicholls established his one-man workshop in the suburbs of the British capital.


Now semi-retired, Colin has earned the reputation of being perhaps the finest contemporary violin maker in the United Kingdom.

It's come to us in pristine original condition showing highly figured wood plus golden-amber oil varnish of high quality.


Back length is 16 3/4 inches .... 418 mm.


With certificate of authenticity from Mr. Nicholls.


We highly recommend this particular instrument, suitable for the most demanding violist.

W.E. Hill & Sons / Colin G. Nicholls English Viola c. 1975 16-3/4" 418mm
