    that one plays by headphone for quiet silent playing, or by amp to blast out the windows

    Have you looked at the Yamaha Silent Violins?

    Yamaha

    They are pretty good for quiet practice.

    I like this Fender in more of a traditional shape.

    For me, its cost, i cant find yamahas for less than 200, im not looking at spending that much on an electric fiddle. the one i had shown was 150, and i have played on it before and sounds good. mostly this will before silent practice, and for when i'm outside with an amp

    I like my Zeta, but unless you get really lucky they are a bit pricey. On the other hand I found the web site for the guy that made my Viola in 1976. I paid $1000, he now charges $14000!!! Yeow! I once called Bein & Fushi about a violin I was interested in (a Gasparo Da Salo) $600,000!!! I wish they would just post prices so you didn't have to feel like such a yutz when you call them. (They really were very nice) Oh well, Platinum taste on a Lead Budget.
