I dont think so, I thought it was for one performance. But again, I could have this mixed up with another story, shouldn't have even mentioned it.

No, I should not have asked so bluntly. It just sounds like a very cool story. The sound of he makes is amazing. So got a bit excited about how he might have sounded.

This one I made almost 25 mm. The player had very big hands (bigger than Perlman). The day after he got the violin he "corrected" the neck to his big hands. The other measures he corrected to 18.5, 19.5 mm

I think he also wanted to make a new nut, with less spacing, looking at his other violins. But he left that as is.

I now have the violin back and the neck is kind of a standard for new violins. Maybe not as extreme, but the shape is absolutely perfect for playing. I can't measure why it's so great, it just is by playing.
