How to choose violin sizes
Violins are available in 8 different sizes: 4/4 (also called full size), 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, 1/16 and 1/32. Size 4/4 is the biggest and size 1/32 is the smallest. All adults, regardless of their size, use the size 4/4 violin.
To measure what size violin best suits you, you need to know the length between your neck and the middle of your left-hand palm (when your hand is fully extended and raised perpendicular to your body, just like holding a violin). Most of the teachers prefer students to use the length from the neck to the wrist for measurement instead of the neck to mid-palm approach. The violin size determined by the neck/wrist approach would be the size that is more comfortable for students to hold. The violin size determined by the neck/mid-palm approach would be the biggest size students should use. The following table lists the length of each violin size. Find your length using your preferred approach and use that to determine the size of violin to get.
If you have a teacher, you should ask for your teacher's recommendation. If you don't have a teacher, we would recommend using the neck/wrist approach for students not using full size; for students who are deciding whether to used size 3/4 or size 4/4, use the neck/mid-palm approach. This is because it is always better those students feeling comfortable holding and playing the violin. However, while deciding between size 3/4 and size 4/4, if neck/mid-palm approach allows for size 4/4, then buying a size 4/4 is more economical since you don't have to buy another bigger size violin later. This is completely based on economical consideration. You should still decide what best suits your need.

2 no setup or bridge work required

4 cord comes out on the right side, if you have ever had a electric violin where it comes out on the left you know why this is a pro
5 Unbelievable price
Can't really think of any, maybe cheap strings that you will need to upgrade?
I selected the Cecilio Acoustic Electric for a couple of reasons. As a classical player, I'm used to having the instrument under my ear so I can hear myself. Also I felt that for weddings, the look was a little classier. I just crossed my fingers and hoped for a decent sound through our PA. We tested the violin the day that it arrived. No preamp is required for this instrument and it sounds FABULOUS through the PA! No shrill sounds, no hum, no feedback. Just played the first gig with the jazz band last weekend and my husband agreed that this was the best sound we've gotten out of all the things we've tried. I only wish I had this instrument 10 years ago.
The instrument by itself (as an acoustic) is a student-quality instrument. On reading the other reviews about "doesn't stay in tune," I wasn't too concerned. Violin pegs have to be pushed in while turning so they will hold. This is how all violins have been tuned for hundreds of years.
I immediately changed the inexpensive steel strings it came with for Thomastik Dominants - Gives a more mellow sound and are easier on the fingers. As for the other items (bow, case, shoulder rest), I haven't really used any of them since I have a bow, case, and shoulder rest I prefer. Bow that came with it seems to be lightweight, but okay. I prefer a heavier bow.
1.) The bow already had broken hairs on it.
2.) Upon inspecting the violin itself I realized the finish was not fully applied to the wood in certain areas and had what looked like minor repairs already done to it along the lip of the wood.
3.) I could hear the wires not secured down for the electronic components as they were rattling around on the inside.
4.) The tuning pegs were VERY low quality and would constantly slip even after reading every possible guide on the internet on this it just comes down to poor quality.
5.) The fine tuners would even make some of the pegs slip not allowing it to ever fully be in tune.
6.) A noticeable electronic humming coming from the output jack indicating poor quality components, loose parts or poorly soldered components.
Please, spend a little more money and buy a better violin or even another brand. This one is just not good.

Pictures don't do it justice, the case is very nice and durable too after a lot of research it seems this is the best bang for my buck for a beginner violinist that wants to dabble with electric and reverb effects. :)
I was disappointed and I have decided to give 2 stars , they failed in proper delivery and parts were missed.
