I just recently got my violin out and restrung it after a twenty year hiatus...
I know this isn't a new crack, but I can't remember when it first appeared (likely 25-30 years ago).
There's no buzzing and it doesn't go all the way to the top or bottom. There's no bulging or signs of separation. Is there an easy DIY fix? I was thinking of using the touch-up markers that StewMac sells, but they're for guitar with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Jeff,,, that doesn't look like a real crack in the wood. Just tonight I was changing the tailpiece on my Concert Master violin and while the end plug was out I noticed that's where the seam in the wood is I hardly think it's an actual crack because there is a wood block behind that the rib's are glued to. It could be just a small seperation in the wood. Can you see through the crack to the inside of the violin ?, put a light inside the violin and look of there's light coming through.
Also, I don't see any other dammage where the top and bottom are glued to the rib's.
I don't think there's a huge problem there.
