I don't know the brand. It had a pretty radical look. There was no sound box for a sound post and f-holes, etc... The material that replaced the sound box was a bizzare shape with nothing on one side exept a little room for the chinrest. Hard to describe. But once under my chin it all felt pretty familiar.
