It looks like the ribs might be let in but, that is something that i can neiterher confirm nor deny, right now.
As to the cornerblocks, it seems that they are longer on the sides that point away fromt the c-bouts, quite a bit longer on the away pointing side, so i know that that does not speak for it being french but rather south germanic-austrian.
What do folks think?
I have gone through the entire thread agin just to re-examine.
My violin has fluting that goes all the way to the back of the throat like the south germanic. And i am not sure what a pronounced back of the head is but i think my violin has it.
The rib corner joint on my violins is made on the inward facing edge, like the south germanic violins, as oposed to the Klingenthal violins where the joint is in the midle. The bottom rib is not in one piece. The linings and corners are pine. But the corners on my violin are sharp like the Klingenthal. My violins corner blocks cover about twice as much upper/lower rib as c bout rib, like the SOuth germanic, the linings are morticed by the way. The purfling corners on my violin point up and down like the mittenwald - austria, where as the Kligenthal many times will point horizontally outwards.
The bass bar and neck graft has been replaced in 1983 by the Copenhagen violin builder Karl Heinel, i have the recipt for this repair. So i would guess that id did not have an integral bass bar, but they could have carved out the origional integral bass bar, but i dont know. The thicness of the middle of the top plate mesures 3.2 milimitters, so i guess that is thicc. The purfling on my violin is 2/3s of the plate deep, (visible at a semi-broken corner) the purfling is dyed all the way through.
Allthogether i think it is more south german or austiran or something like that, but then again pleas dot grill me at too high a tempature, if i am wrong. thanks for the help
