An early example of American violin making, little is known about the maker W. Burnham.  Most luthiers in the United States had little access to the rich tradition of violin making of Europe unless they had trained in Europe prior to immigrating to the US.  Mr. Burnham's work shows that he had some background in these traditions.  The body is slightly longer than the typical violin and features a lack of corners which simplifies some aspects of building the instrument.  Restored at our shop, the violin has a dark tone that would suit it well to bluegrass and other folk styles.
