For the sake of those who ask, it's an electric violin. And yes, it's a frame, he was really playing, and the melody was very audible. I have photographed him four times, twice backstage+concert and twice for my personal work and his promo. Thank you

Just now I realised how damn stupid I am. THIS is one of my favourite picture of all times... and just now it came to me that the model is the guitarist from luna sea... *double face palm* SHAME ON ME
This picture is fantastic. Because I can really feel the passion and hear his intense violin music (I've never listened to his violin plays, but through this picture I assume that it is). Absolutely stunning and beautiful. This is the first picture that seriously touched my heart. Thank you for sharing with us!
I really like this! Can I ask what it's like to play an electric violin? I have a regular one and i'm thinking about getting and electric one, but i don't know if I should. Do you have any suggestions?
Love the electric!! Mine's not *nearly* as cool... *pout* And yes, it is quite audible, contrary to popular belief, it is not "silent". They are still violin strings on there, just no body and no sound post to make it louder. <3 <3 <3
I remember seeing him playing with X in Vancouver at Queen Elizabeth theater last summer. I'll never forget that experience! X is one of my favorite bands I grew up with for the past 6 years. He played the beginning of Dahlia on violin while Yoshiki played the piano.
