Just finished a large restoration on this violin. The instrument had suffered serious damage at some point (and possibly a few bad repairs), and so the neck angle was wrong despite attempts to correct it with an oversized wedge.

The repair ended up involving partial disassembly of the violin in order to correct the angles, followed by replacing the old fingerboard which was too thin and flexible, and planing down the old wedge. There were also peg hole bushings required due to the size the old holes had worn to and new pegs, bridge, soundpost, endpin and tailpiece in order to make the instrument play and sound to its full potential.
