"in need of restoration" is a bit of an understatement!

Sorry, I disagree - if an instrument is in need of restoration, then it is clear what state it is in. I didn't write "in need of repair" - now that would have been an understatement! :D

Bridget - I wasn't criticizing your original post. Just slightly shocked by the condition of the instrument, particularly given the asking price. I'm no luthier, but I would imagine that this particular instrument is fairly close to the firewood end of the scale!

Hi Paul,
You're definitely right about the starting price being too high considering the amount of work needed to be done. Even Neil Brook isn't interested in it - now that's saying something! ;)
