OK, this is a cello story, not a violin story, but I thought it might be of interest. I remember some discussion in a thread a while back about flying with a violin, so some folks might feel some empathy for this poor man and his story about flying with a Guarneri cello made in 1669.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

WOW, that's quite a story.  What recourse do you suppose he had  in the end ? After reading the letter he received from the head office. Probably just happy his cello wasn't dammaged.

Actually I was waiting for the horrible ending.

        facepalm   Great story, thank's for sharing.

Phew!

And to think I was worried about my £80 cheapo Chinese import!

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!
