My Violin, In Repair

So I have had my violin in the shop recently, as it needed some cosmetic repairs. One corner had caved in, the bottom had chips taken out of it from performance wear and tear, and there was just a lot of varnish damage.

Guarneri House Violin Shop did a fantastic job fixing up my instrument.

Here is the corner that was once concave, and is now rightly convex again. :)


 ...and here she is looking nearly brand new, with a fresh coat of varnish!

I am thrilled to have my violin back!

For those gear heads out there:

My instrument is a Meyers Halverson violin made in 1972, it was the instrument my Grandfather used in the Grand Rapids Symphony.
