  1. Agree with Jacob. The first written character looks like an Re
  2. Does anyone have pics of the screws Strad used?
  3. If it was stamped after it was made neatness may not have been a priority
  4. I'd swear I can see the grain going through the purfling. It looks inked on.
  5. Thanks for the replies.
  6. BTW what is the piece they were playing?
  7. Musically speaking why change the body shape at all? I realize the gamba has 6 strings but if you just change the peg box or even only use 4 of the 6 pegs wouldn't that be much easier?
  8. listed by someone with 0 feedback. No doubt intended as a joke.
  9. fwiw:
  10. I recently asked about a Hill bow from this seller, and it was deemed not authentic. I am always leery of people who seem to have an endless supply of goods from a 'collection'. over a long period of time. There is a silver dealer on ebay who claims to be listing silver from his collection. He list around 20 items a week (his stuff is real tho) and he's been doing this for years. It's not plausible.
  11. Andrew, interesting that you saw L St J at a borders hawking her new cd. I went to see her at our local Borders. Guess she was making the rounds.
  12. It does look very similar. One site I visited that made repro antique bass bows called them baroque village bows. Unfortunately I no longer own this bow as it didn't quite fit into anything I collected or needed.
  13. I notice the p in Paolo is not capitalized.
