The Making of a 5-String Violin-Gallery 1

Below are photos (in no particular order) of the making process of this violin. This 5-string is not just a violin with an extra peg stuffed into the peg box. Structural changes and alterations were made to accommodate the C-string and allow for the vibrating of the top and back plates. I will continue to post galleries of this process as I move along. This instrument will take 100 to 120 hours to complete.
