  1. I think you have that backwards. Andrew
  2. I understood the OP to be saying that he thought the shop had set up the Fagnola deliberately so that it would sound bad and make ‘lesser’ instruments appear bargains in comparison. Andrew
  3. Googled him.
  4. Speaking of fancy labels, there was an English amateur maker of the 1920s (?) whose name escapes me – a reverend someone – who had a most impressive one. Answers on a postcard. Andrew
  5. I believe that the rounded ends indicate that it was cut with a router. The ‘sloppily cut’ is damage. Andrew
  6. Has anyone seen anything like this or know what it might mean in relation to an 1899 Collin-Mezin? It seems to be under the varnish, but I’m not certain. Andrew
  7. Shellac should bond silver to ebony very well. Andrew
  8. Is this really a Craske? Was his purfling that bad? The varnish doesn’t look much like a typical Craske, either. Andrew
  9. How would that work if they are both lousy players? Andrew
