Back Center Joint Repair

Recommended Posts

Dear Members, I've got a violin in which the center joint has given way by about 1 1/2 inches. Would recommend the removal of the back?

Thank you for any response.

I recommend removing the top -- not the back.  Removing the back is much harder because of the button.  Depending on where the separation is, you may have to also remove the fingerboard to gain access.

I was able to remove the back plate and the crack is now glued.  Tomorrow I'll be reattaching the back.  Cheers for all ideas.
