From Bill Jehle:
The second oldest instrument in the collection, this old violin is initialed and dated by the builder: A.H.B. '89"… In 1994, Shane Speal commissioned world-renown luthiers, Jeff Hostetter and Amy Hopkins to restore the violin to a fully playable condition. In the process, it was converted from 3-strings to 4. Two years and many shop hours later, it was returned to Speal, strung up and ready for the concert stage.
