  1. Now I am wondering (uh-huh) about instruments that have been stripped and refinished. 1. Never strip and refinish. Devalues. 2. Happens anyways. 3. You have such an instrument that has been "improved"...and it plays well. Do you: A. Leave it as is. B. Try to "restore" it, since you have nothing to lose at this point? C. Decide if an early refinishing has, by now, redeemed any possible value...and do a happy dance. D. Decide to have a drink, but find you're out of Diet Dr. Pepper. It's all so endlessly convoluted...
  2. Hello everyone. I have been lurking here for awhile and finally decided to post. I have a 1926 Ernst Heinrich Roth 1718 Strad that I picked up for a few hundred dollars at a pawn shop. It is a lovely violin, but it makes me kind of sad every time I play it because some @&$! brushed over the original finish with polyurethane before I got it. The violin actually sounds quite nice it is just not quite as loud as it should be. I am wondering what if anything can be done to remove the polyurethane without damaging the original finish. I understand that refinishing is a giant No! So far the most drastic thing I have done is pick at a rough spot in the poly with my fingernail. I will try to put up a few pictures soon.
