I recently had my fiddle taken apart for repairs and found a partial label inside. I think it may be clue as to the maker.
Although it is mostly gone the letter M is visible ( probably for Made by ) and the chain link border is visible. The border seem to be unique. I searched online for violin labels and found hundreds, but none that looked like this.
If anyone recognizes this or knows of any database where I could look for more labels, I would be very grateful.
Kevin, when you say you "had" it taken apart, does that mean someone else disassembled it ? And if you did, how did you get the top and bottom off, with a hot knife ?
I want to take my Chinese fiddle apart.
Sorry for that,,, I had the poster mixed up with you Kevin.
Generally when I take a top off it is really quite easy. I work a knife into the joint and slowly crack the joint open. If it doesn't come I will heat it slightly and apply a very small amount of water. For the most part they crack open easily. Taking the neck off is different it is put on with a stronger glue and needs heat but it ready a quick crack and it's off. The fingerboard I use a steam iron on and work a knife under then start peeling it off.
