RETIRED (No longer accepting repair work)

I can honestly say that in the nearly 40 years I have been doing instrument repair, I have never had one come in the shop that I couldn’t fix.  Conversely, when the instrument is going to cost more to fix than it is worth, I will certainly let you know.  To see my work in action check out my YouTube Channel here:   RSW YouTube

Here are the “before” shots of the fiddle in the picture above:

Fiddle top repaired with hot glue gun
Hot glue guns are really never a good option for repairing instruments. You can see in the photo at the top, all hot glue was removed.
Underneath side of the top
As you can see, a few extra braces were added in 1963.  Obviously This repair was done by an amateur.
