Hi there, I recently saw a violin that someone "fixed", where instead of removing the neck and setting it to the correct angle, the person put a wedge under the fingerboard to raise it to the correct angle. Is this sometimes considered an acceptable fix? This should actually make playing harder in higher positions since it makes the neck thicker the closer you go to the body of the violin. Basicly the neck is almost straight with the body. So is this fix acceptable? Personally I would remove the wedge, and set the neck to the correct angle. But why wasnt something like that d
Hi, does anyone have some advice on some methods for re-setting a neck that has a sunken fingerboard and needs to be removed and re-set? I've done shims, and added a piece to the button; and I've seen a chiseled block to angle the neck back. Thanks for your time.
