Geeez I thought it was totally different.  I was told that they take parts from old dead violins and reassemble them. Then they put it on a table during a lightning storm and raise it to the roof.  When the lightning hits, the luthier yells Egor bring it down. The luthier then tries it and proclaims IT'S ALIVE.

Well, electrics don't have a "soul" (soundpost) anyway.  devil-violin

 

Hmm.. have to kinda wonder about acoustic violins, though..  If an acoustic violin/fiddle player "went down to the crossroads" would they have to get a new soundpost for their violin/fiddle afterwards?

LOL

Great contribution Oz; I hope to build one in the next year with some iron wood & a Barbera bridge pickup that I just bought.
