Welcome to Jordan Electric Violins

John Jordan is a recognized violin maker and has designed and built a full range of stringed instruments including Violins, Viola , Cellos, Upright Bass, and Guitars & Bass Guitars.

Jordan Electric Violins achieve superior balance and ergonomic function through innovative design and master craftsmanship.

  • Eliminating unnecessary mass from the body and scroll places the remaining weight as close to the support of the chin and shoulder as possible.
  • Relocating the tuning pegs behind the bridge takes weight off the neck, making the instrument seem lighter and giving a sleek appearance.
  • Using precision geared tuning machines makes fine tuners unnecessary.
  • Rigid termination at both ends of the string provides maximum pitch stability, one, and output to the transducer system.
  • Maintaining standard violin geometry and proportion allows any violin pickup system to be used and the semi-solid body design ensures no feedback even at stage volume.

The concepts and design of the JORDAN ELECTRIC VIOLIN are protected under U.S. PATENT #5191159. Foreign patents pending.
