Hi, I recently bought another violin on Ebay for a cheap price, to practice on. The violin has a crack on top, right through top to bottom. Interestingly enough, the top is one-piece spruce, so its not the center seam that seperated. Quite a bit I can learn from repairing this. Someone seem to have painted over the crack, in an attempt to disguise it, and because the repair doesnt seem good. Dont know what glue they were using, but it is black and plastic-like. Can someone maybe suggest something I can try to use to remove the paint? If there is still varnish left underneath the paint, I'd like to try to keep as much of it as possible, otherwise I'll just touch it up again. Im attaching a photo aswell. Thank You.
