Neck Angle of Guarnerius


Recommended Posts

Hello all. I have a guarnerius style fiddle. The angle of the neck is lower than strads I have had in the past. The Heberlein Guarnerius I used to own did not have as low a neck angle as this one. Do the Guarnerius style violins typically have lower neck angles and how low of an angle is too low?

Manfio. When I received this violin I thought the angle was a bit low. However right out of the box the tone and volume were much better than my TH Jr. The fellow that is cutting a new bridge and adjusting the soundpost noticed the low angle too. Although he has not commented on the tone he did say it was much easier to play after a new setup. I respect his observation as he is a very good fiddler and maker. Lp
