It's a beauty. I love the purfling on the back.

And, man would I be nervous balancing my brand new 5 string fiddle on my car's roof rack while I stepped back just out of reach to take a picture. Potential Energy is not your friend!

Ha! Yeah, you're right, but if you are going to have any peace working with these things you have to keep in mind that, ultimately, "it's just a little wooden box". That is what I tell customers who are shy about handling them. And you know what? No one has ever dropped or damaged one, and it makes for good relations. But you are right...it was difficult to get that side-shot, as the fiddle really did not want to stay on top of the roof rack. :lol:
I had it zoomed out and was never more than arm's reach away.
