Does my heel stick out too much?


Recommended Posts

I like the curve - it will allow easier extension to higher positions!

A comment...

It may be an optical illusion, but it looks as if there is a slight dip in the neck where it meets the heel.

You can look down the fingerboard and from the scroll whilst turning the violin to get a 'long view' of the neck.

I prefer good optical correctness, even if the ruler does not agree.

Along the horizontal plane in the pic? If that is what you are refering too, that is what I mean. The way is dips in and then flares out.

David, I'll check that out, thanks.

I will be giving the edge the same curve as the rest of the plate egdes, that should help.

Thanks.

I was referring to the apparent dip in the 'semi-vertical' line of the neck near the bottom.

Looking down the neck that looks perfectly straight. It may be an effect due to the camera being so close for the shot.

I checked the heel measurement and it is 27mm, but the button is 16mm from the outer edge of the purfling as per the C&J book.
