    That lion head scroll is really cool. I hardly ever see anyone with the carved scroll around. I ooo'ed and ah'd at the first one I ever saw. I was so envious!

    Huh? :blink:

    I would think that this instrument dates really loooong back, caz the carved scrolls are periodical decoration.
    How much did it cost u?
    And the scope and angle of yr chin rest looks odd to me. U had it repositioned or something? Or did it come like that originally?
    Caz I&#39;ve noticed that instruments with baroque setups had their chinrest there at times...considering the fact that, that was the way they used to play before Bach&#39;s time.

    How much? Hm i cannot remember, my mum payed, but i think around 2 000 €, it was a great luck&#33;
    The chinrest i bought because the standard chin rests made problems with my posture (i have a too long neck :P) so this was the solution, if i remember right, max wanted to search for his middle chinrest (from soloviolin) *eyes to max*
