The AS-202T Viola is a 16.5" Lionel Tertis model viola. This viola was designed to give the sound of a larger viola without the unmanageable size. A Tertis model Viola has narrower upper bouts, wider lower bouts, and taller ribs. This maximizes the volume of air of the body, creating the sound the Tertis was so fond of, while allowing the musician to easily access the higher register by reaching around the narrower upper bouts.

Purfling: Inlaid
Fingerboard, Nut, Saddle: Ebony
