I was wondering if any of you guys and gals could help me out here.

Can I borrow some glue, does anyone have a spare bridge and where can I get some decent strings? My violin had a little accident in the bar room.

Thanks in advance.

Oh, and I need a bow too ... but, I'm OK for rosin, and I think I have a case around here somewhere as well :)

You see, I think things were getting way too serious around here ...

OH.

I bet your gonna have a hard time tuning it. Looks like it was stepped on or pulled through a set of rungs seeing how those cracks are aligned. I disregard calling it an "axe" style swing as the broken part is not crushed.

I hope this is a joke. I would be devastated if that was my violin.

... well, the repair guy asked who made the instrument, and I had trouble seeing the label inside. I got to it eventually!

I would seriously take Kevin up on this offer. I have confidence that he could do it and I would LOVE to follow this project.

Also, Kevin, it would be SUPER cool if you could take tons of pictures on the way and give us details to what and how you do it.

Or maybe you were kidding?????
