Subject: RE: When your luthier disses your baby
LOL, it sounds like he's a normal luthier!

No, there really are construction flaws (other than the soundpost crack!). The button is a bit off-center and not drilled in exactly straight, so the bridge trys to pull out of alignment. There's a slight hump in the fretboard waaaayy up where I'll never play it anyway.

In other words, nothing to get too worried about, as far as I'm concerned.

The guy I bought it from is a real folkie guy that understands fiddles, but I didn't think he had the technical skills to pull off what was going to be a very tough peg job. He'll certainly be getting my regular business though!
