I've been think about scrolls lately as I'm plodding my way through my #2 build. For #1 I just glued a paper template onto the neck block. I know a lot of people do that and it's pretty easy, but I would like to make a permanent template. What kind of material and thickness would be best for making neck/scroll template for clamping onto the neck block? Is there a consensus on whether a 1mm drop from the fingerboard gluing surface to the peg box is preferred? The model that I'm basing my violin on is the Strad Titian. However, it is far from a copy so I feel comfortable using a different models scroll especially if the length of the peg box happens to be a better (more functional) length. Maybe they're all about the same so it doesn't matter. Are some Strad scrolls generally recognized as nicer than others? Your opinions are welcome. Thanks, Jim
