Fender Musical Instruments Corporation or FMIC was established in 1946, making a name for itself in the rock n’ roll industry with its acoustic and electric guitars, which were seen and continue to be seen on stage as being played by the most successful music artists.

The excellent quality of Fender instruments is not limited to their guitars, but extends to every instrument that has the Fender logo. Although they are known for making the best guitars, acoustic and electric, in the world, you will also be surprised to know that they also make the best electric violins.
Yes, violins. In fact, as far back as the fifties, Fender violins have been making waves because of their sleek design and excellent sound quality. Two great violins from the Fender brand are the Fender Electric Violin FV-1 and the Fender Electric Violin FV-2.
The amazing thing about the FV-1 violin is that it can be used as an acoustic violin for playing classical music. But it transforms into a modern instrument when plugged in. The FV-1 was first released in the fifties, and is still making waves to this day. It is a full sized violin or a 4/4. Its body is chambered and has a solid spruce top. It has a luscious maple color for its back and sides, with an ebony fingerboard. It even has a piezo electric bridge, a beautiful bow and rosin. The hard shell case it comes in is equally elegant as well.
Meanwhile, a step up from the FV-1 is the FV-3. This is Fender’s Electric Violin’s deluxe model. It has the same features as the FV-1, except that it has an upgraded hard shell and a case with a built-in hygrometer. It also has a tube to hold its high quality strings.
Fender continues to be a leader in all strings instruments, whether violins or guitars. Most people who have bought or used the Fender FV-1 or FV-3 electric violins say that they are extremely happy with the sound quality these models produce. Of course, even when played the traditional way, they did not sound exactly like their traditional wooden counterparts. However, many users say that the sound is still excellent, especially when it is used as an electric violin.
Many Fender electric violin users also say that this is the most ergonomically made and comfortable violin they have ever used. The bow that comes with it is also of good quality. This is the perfect electric violin for concerts and bands. So over all it only goes to show that you cannot go wrong with a Fender.
