    Thin table on a Postiglione violin

    How thin is too thin?  In a recent talk, Samuel Zygmuntowicz specultates that cleats used to reinforce old cracks may aid to a better or special sound quality.  The jury is still out on that.  This Postiglione violin top is certainly thinner then most.  In general the thickness of a violin top ranges from 2.4 to 3.2 in the sound post area, this is 2.5 in the sound post area.  I thought you would enjoy these photos.
