 Do they really have 5 stars? Not surprising. I have heard some stories about what they're up to. Well, they're still up to it, and KU people have to go to Topeka or KC now.

all were 5 star other than a lone 1 star rating - that could've been a stringed instrument.

if you let them know you guys know some about violin repair maybe they'll send you some work.

Sometime you gotta  love those guys (the hacks).  One of my most lucrative jobs was saving a cello when one of those guys left town leaving a newly made top on a customers cello, varnished with some kind of black goo which would never dry. I stripped and revarnished the top (with antiquing) in about a day.  Made beaucoup  bucks on that one.   

Does that make you a "hack" too?
