  1. I'm surprised they didn't use a French instrument in the advertisement!
  2. Darkened pegboxes (black or what ever color) in older instruments is a typical step after a scroll graft and bushings. Most of the expensive instruments where I work have darkened pegboxes. If you like it, do it. If you don't, don't. It's not a big deal!
  3. Matt, Those strings are the Chinese ones that come on the bass originally. I believe most folks toss them. I would replace them with D'Addario Helicore strings. --Chris
  4. Mr. Wall, I would think some "L" patches or cleats (whatever your preferred terminology is) would be the safe way to go. I've seen these on some rather old repairs with few problems. --Chris
  5. I've had great luck with unstained boxwood. Several years ago I picked up a bag of pen blanks from Woodcraft. --Chris
  6. Are these instruments by a father and son? --Chris
  7. I'm with Martina and Manfio, I would purfle. Without purfling, I think this would be a hard instrument to sell where I work. --Chris
  8. haxxorpoop, I would check the purfling channel to see if some of the purfling has come loose. --Chris
  9. Melvin, Outstanding! Are any of your fiddles in the States? --Chris
  10. Omobono, Is this instrument from a well knowm music collection? --Chris
  11. I would try Howard Core. An 8th size does sound large for a 4 year old. --Chris
