The famous Gliga III body, custom tailored to the school market and more accessible than ever
The St Romani outfit was developed in 2016 to meet growing demand for European instruments in the school and student market. The very same body that the Gliga III is built from has been finished with a hard wearing nitro varnish that stands up better to punishment than it's oil-finished counterpart.
Just like a Gliga III the pegs, fingerboard and chinrest are made from genuine ebony (as opposed to stained hardwood often found in student instruments), the tailpiece is a genuine German-made Wittner Ultralight, and the all important bridge is the same high quality aged maple model from the famous French bridge company Aubert.
The instrument is delivered in an FPS dart case with backpack straps which is light and strong for travel between home and the school hall. The outfit is rounded out with a set of Clarendon Gold synthetic strings a step above steel factory strings, and the famous FPS brazilwood horsehair bow with fully mounted Ebony frog.
