  1. Hello to all experts out there. I would like to know if could be possible to identify this scroll. Just age or area could be fine. I have only the baroque style neck and scroll so in this case I can not post the rest of the instrument. Thank you very much in advance.
  2. I'm not quite sure of understanding your message. Maybe you think they are similar?
  3. This is the inside and this is the haunting surprise that was inside... Damn the one who glued the top... ...
  4. Any opinion about the violin?...
  5. Hi. These are some photos of the scroll. Do you think is it possible to determine its origin or at least its age?
  6. Hi. Is a partially unfluted scroll/pegbox back a feature widely used or is restricted to some schools? Is it an aesthetic feature or just a method of avoiding costs? Thanks in advance.

    Hi. I would like to know if the "correct" proportions between neck stop and body stop (2:3) can be altered and which could be the consecuences in tone, playability, etc. I have an old violin which is 130mm neck stop but 200mm body stop. Do you think it should be modified? And if so how? Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi. Thank you very much for all your help. The owner brought it as he thought that the neck had sunk. He has had it for years. I have been checking the neck without tension and seems to be perfectly steady with no movement at all. The button area is also stable. I will check it again however. The arching is slightly distorted under the bridge. Looking through the endpin hole the top block looks like joined to the top plate with no seam between them. The measurements: 26,7 mm projection at the bridge, 19 mm height at end of fingerboard, 5,5 mm overstand. 5'5mm G string height at end of fingerboard and 3 mm E string. Maybe the neck needs to be raised a bit. But I'm wondering if it is worth to remove the neck just to get 0,3mm. What do you think?
  9. The neck graft seems to be properly done but I can not understand how this could affect the neck angle.

  11. Hi. Thank you very much for your replies. I'm attaching some photos. It is noteworthy the angle of the lower ribs at the lower block area. The projection of the fingerboard is 26'7 mm at the bridge so very close to standards.
  12. Hi. I have been brought a violin for repair with its fingerboard almost touching the top. It seems the neck has collapsed with the tension. The button seems to be ok so could it be that the top has sunken at the bridge area? Maybe raising the overstand can be a solution? Thank you very much in advance.

    Outside mold?

    Thanks. Do you think it can be done with an inside one?
  14. Hi. I would like to know if this type of corner blocks (extended to the center bout instead on the upper and lower ones) is typical of an outside mold. I think that with an inside one it is difficult to accomplish this. Thank you very much in advance. PS: I apologize for the quality of the photo.
