This Preview listing shows a sample of what is to come for the Shen SB 300 Busetto that was on display at the 2019 Anaheim NAMM show. The body shape os a little more of a modern “A-frame” or “Pear shape” than is typical for Shen. The upper bout is 18 1/2″ wide and the string length is slightly shorter than usual, at an even 41″. This instrument has a very nice high quality spruce top, Maple back and sides, decorative chip carving on the exterior linings and pegbox that might remind one of Pollman style decoration, a tail wire attachment plug that is separate form the endpin, and a nice deep orange oil varnish color. I will be replacing the current bridge, endpin, tailiece, and strings with a conservatory style setup and Pirastro strings. The estimated completion of setup dates about February 12, 2019.
