Going through some used rental instruments and found this 1/8-size 1989 Suzuki violin with a plastic volute. You can see the wood-plastic joint at about 9 o'clock on the outer term, and if you look closely, you can follow the line up and around the curve. Apparently the scroll is cut relatively flat, then this plastic volute was glued into place. Easy to miss with a quick glance, though I suppose the colors have faded differently over the years.
