Kim Nugent really named her Brunkalla fiddle Tiger because of the rich flaming. No, Martin does not call his walnut-backed fiddle Wally, but maybe he should (hey, I needed a catchy title for the caption). Wally is a 5-string fiddle, the back is a single piece of walnut (a gorgeous specimen, even evidenced in spite of the glare of the camera flash), and the sides are walnut as well. The tail piece is one with 5 built-in tuners, and the sitka spruce top is an eye-popping specimen - that rascal knows how to carve the top to preserve the *microstructures* of the grain, as he called them.
