    A fine creation, David. Very elegant design and timber choices. The geared violin tuning pegs are such a good idea too.

    Thank you. John. I think the traditional mustache bridge is a bit too much "19th century", so I tried for something more contemporary. The arm rest is a nice nod to the designs of the modern German and Italian builders.
