The neck may be original . The button definitely is not. This looks to me to be somewhat better and possibly older than the usual MK fancy fiddle. Good pictures would be needed for an informed opinion.

please elaborate on the photos I need to take?

Echoing the lion, :P

Lovely, and unless you can do it yourself, prohibitively expensive to resurrect.  If you stick it on eBay, I guarantee it will sell for at least $50 (in this case, I'd even foot reasonable shipping), and probably more when some !@#$%^&* outbids me.  :lol:  How does it sound?  :)

LOL I have no way to play it as there is no bow. However I will be taking it in to a Violin shot tomorrow to get their opinion on it and see if it sounds good or not.

...not lost, broken and badly set...

Ah, I see now, the tongue is upside down.

That's because the violin is ill and poorly, and the Lion is not feeling well. :lol:

I'm just wondering why you bought this particular instrument. Did the lion appeal to you?

Whats interesting is that this looks like it never had a saddle, something I never saw before, even on a low grade instrument, and this doesnt look like it was (at least originally) a terribly made violin.

Maybe it has a flush saddle - of boxwood.

And then again, it does have a nice new bridge blank.
