What are your favorite things you've heard a luthier say? My favorite was when one day I was showing an instrument of mine to luthier Nick Frirsz. He looked it over for several minutes with a rather inquisitive expression and said: "Well, it's pretty cool. It was made by someone, who was sitting next to someone, who knew what they were doing." I got a big kick out of this and will never forget it. I still have the instrument, which has since been restored and is really quite exceptional, and I think about that line all the time.
Here is a really interesting Winterling violin that I had restored. It retains its original fittings, which is particularly cool because Winterling developed his own style of peg. I couldn't get the photos of the restoration to upload, but they can be found here.
