I have a couple of "project" violins for the winter.
One has no label, is a lovely dark colour, fine inlaid purfling and a one piece back. But looks tatty and in need of sanding and varnish.
If I sand it (a lot! under the bridge area) will it lose it's colour?
It also needs a new nut and some pegs.
The scroll is so irregular it looks like its hand carved and not machined. ( and no paint in the pegbox, only old varnish.

The other is a better condition Chinese "Stentor" that needs a tidying up.

I'll try uploading some pictures over the weekend

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

My German Violin  ($1200 list) has a finished peg box, most nicer violins do, the painted box is the step up from the "we did nothing raw wood box"


I think Id take it in for an estimate of worth before I start scraping and sanding on it

There is no shame in playing twinkle, youre playing Mozart
