From Noah ScottYou might want to try one of my very good friends, Kate Rickenbacker. She lives in Black Mountain N.C. She graduated from the Chicago School with me and we worked together for five years. She's a very good and fairly prolific maker, and you can visit her website at rickenbackerviolins.com
