Hi there, I would like to thin down the neck of my main playing violin (Top to bottom, not side to side). I prefer a violin with a thin neck, as it plays much more comfortably for me, and it feels rather thick currently. I have put off doing this for a while, but am finally going to attempt it. I also have a "test" violin which I will practice it on first. At what thickness will it start to compromise the structure of the neck, causing it to possibly warp under string tension? What is the thinnest you could go before it starts to become a structural problem waiting to happen?
