Well with a 14 inch top and the length of those lower rib corners,

if it doesn't sound good,,,,,,you could use it for a glider,,,or mabe a wind surfer

:lol:

Oops, a little units error there (he said as the Mars mission sailed past the planet due to a newton vs. pound error).

Somehow, I think I'd notice something amiss as I tried to carve a 14" arch. Anyway, I edited my post to correct this.

That is one nice lookin unit,,,,

fantastic color,,and photos,,,

It just has "The look"

of course you already know that,,,,,

Did you make a template for that ?

I'm lusting

Thanks Evan. I have to be a bit careful re what I say about this instrument but what I can say is that the outline of the back and front was so different that a 3 piece mold had to be made to create a rib structure that could fit..It was quite fun.

Hi Evan,

Thanks for your interest. Sorry to you and all for sending multiple posts.

This viola Matteo Goffriller 16 inch viola excited me too. I lost some pics fooling around with a new camera but will add a few. This viola was cut down and rebuilt in the body and the F's,,, nevertheless it has an original scroll to die for and plays as well as you would hope to expect from a Venetian of that vintage reconstructed by experts..The body is quite narrow and the arching high..back 19.5...front 23mm . Violinists like the original, It has a violin radius board and steel strings. The varnish on the original is like a pentimento paint and rather opaque with a lot of toolmarks in the wood.

A few things... you can probably tell which is which:

- A Two Cherries 9x20 bent gouge. Santa came early this year.

- A batch of wood recently out of the processing chamber.

- A batch of wood ready to go into the processing chamber.

- A fairly high-powered compression horn driver... which will need a bit of modification to convert it into a high-powered bridge driver, and hopefully give a final answer to the question about "playing in". (I'll have to also make a heavy, soundproof box to run the test in).

Don,

I made this for fun one slow afternoon, but it works very well - you can play anything you want through the violin.
