The ‘Infidel’ is simply my name for a smooth-shaped violin, a design now closely associated with me but even Mr Strad himself made some.

Often considered a modern classic, the instantly recognisable Infidel is a smooth, simple and neat form of violin that generally offers a more mellow and forgiving sound to the player. Basic dimensions and construction are the same as conventional violins, but without the points (corners), and usually with my simple ‘open scroll’ design.

I can offer them in a range of colours, with a broad choice of purfling and other details.

Fedex have now declared that my Mandolin is lost!! How can this possibly happen!
I cannot recommend to anyone to use Fedex.
Sent on the 21st May by their Priority service and they have lost it. Still no tracking since Kidderminster. it should have gone to the USA.
PLEASE PLEASE KEEP SHARING and hopefully it might turn up somewhere.
This is a totally unique instrument, it will surely stand out anywhere.
Thank you
