I have a fender fv 3 violin. I just recieved it. I like the violin but it's verry slippery, the bow sometimes slip off the strings while i'm playing, mostly when i'm really in the groove. It's annoying. If that would happen in the middle of a performance i would look really stupid. I'm only a beginner and i would like to hear if anyone else has got the fender fv3, and what you think of the violins sound and stuff. is there anything i can do to prevent the bow from slipping? They say it's a bluegrass violin allowing you to play chords more easily but after i started playing the fender i've had some trouble with my acustic one, for example when i play on the A string i hit the D string with the bow. The two violins are so different from one another that when i have played the electric for a while i can't play the acoustic one properly and the other way around. Weird.
