There is a new article I wrote about acquiring my Grampa s Fiddle in the Members Articles, accessible in the menu bar above the forum. I am posting photos of what it looks like now here,  with a link to the article.

Here is the article link:

Grampa's Folk Fiddle

Since the article, I have had it refurbished and is now playable. These two bottom photos were not in the article. This was done after I wrote the article.

When I can read the sheet music, I will make a video for y'all.

Thank you. I could not believe that when my brother told me about that that I actually found one! He was over last week and saw and heard it. He was thrilled.

And, yes, the luthier did a great job.

I sure did find a treasure, ELCBK. I can't wait to get the glasses I need to read my sheet music so I can make a video with it.

@mouse this is a great story and Im very happy for you that it found its way back after all that time!  Id be like you and want to know who was the first person that had it, what they played, and the next and so on.  Congrats on this!

Thanks, GregW. This is what I hinted to you about in a PM a month or so ago.
