  3. Re: Looking for a US luthier that does bowlback restoration

    Lawrence (Larry) Brown in Weaverville NC may be an option. Besides new builds, he used to do a lot of repair work on renaissance instruments. Good luck!

    Re: Straps

    My favorite is the thin braided Hines Strap - kanga leather from Down Under. I think Carmel Music in CA still carries them - not cheap, but lasts forever. G
