    As a buyer, if I am buying a "hand made" violin, I want it to be made by hand.

  4. Bow familiar to anyone?

    I believe it does, very good eye Mr Meyer. Although it is not the typical upside down stamp. I decided to go out on a limb and send pics to JFR to see if by any chance he recognized it.....well, he did, and it will be in its way to him later today. I will update this post when I have some definitive information.

    Just want to add that the weight is without hair, what you see in the pictures is all there is. I'm hoping to end up around 55+ when the work is complete.

    Starting at about 6" in front of the winding and running for the next 10" there is significant "wear" where is is quite rounded over on the edges.

    28 1/2 exactly, There is about a 10" long area that is off center and favors the end, the edges of the facets are well rounded, especially the top. Could someone have had this done to customize to their personal tastes? I am curious if this will play well or be whippy.... Am I right in my assumption this is probably German?

    Awesome Jacob!!!! Thank you very much, will order this morning! Not sure what happened on the weight, it is a fairly strong stick and I was very surprised when I weighed it.

    You can get vintage frosting spatulas on eBay, various lengths, thicknesses and stiffness/flexibility, they work great.

    If you had actually taken time to read them you would see that they pertain today just as much as they did when they were written.

    Our founding fathers were a lot smarter than we were. I think many do not understand why our constitution is written the way it is, and why the govt will never round up the firearms. https://www.buckeyefirearms.org/gun-quotations-founding-fathers We may be a new country compared to many, but we have one of the oldest running governments, so it seems to work. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_by_date_of_formation
