Mat Roop Posted October 19, 2019 Report Share Posted October 19, 2019 Hi Folks... I'm just getting to restoring a Ruggeri copy violin that I acquired several years ago. How would you proceed re the bass bar and varnish??? 1- The bass bar is only 4.5 mm thick and 14.5 mm high including the top of 4mm thick at the center beside the bass bar... would you replace or reglue the existing which is unglued in places. 2-The varnish is heavily grained... do you think that the leathery texture is the result of the original varnish with the smooth parts being the ground, or is it a varnish applied at a later date. I like the look of the distinct texture but it is rather exaggerated. ... What would you do (besides using it for firewood:))?? Thanks for your thoughts! ...
