  1. Thanks all. I have it hanging on the wall in my shop, but I definitely wasn't planning to copy it. I started by making a mold based on the Strad PG form for my first build.
  2. Hi all , I’m wondering if any of you have any insight on this plate. I’m mostly curious because of the unusually large upper bout at 173mm (looks like it might have been 174-ish originally). The other measurements seem pretty typical at 108 center, 204 lower bout and 355 length (over arch to the remaining top corners). I only have the plate. Thoughts? The handwritten note on the inside is from a previous repairer. It reads: “New bass bar and repairs by A. R. Swearingen Miami Fla 3/1926” I’ve been getting started making my first violin and I ended up with this as part of a lot of other items from someone who had apparently purchased them from a luthier’s estate and was reselling them.
