What Kind of Violin Do You Have?

Do you like it? How much did it cost you? I had to sell my violin previously because I needed money more than the violin. Now I want to start taking violin lessons again and might have to buy a violin first (I have a 5 string violin, but it needs some work before it will really sound good enough for lessons, plus I'm not sure if the teacher will approve of a 5 string instrument). I'm looking at getting a new violin anyway. I'd prefer an acoustic electric, but I know those are pretty rare in violins. I was thinking of a silent electric practice model before, but that really wouldn't help me out for lessons so I most likely won't go with that idea. If you could let me know about your violin and what you like about it and what you don't, that would be very helpful. I'm not afraid of buying instruments online either if you have a recommendation of a particular place.
