    Del Gesu purfling

    The "fingerprint", the stylistic id of a maker is often to be found around the edges of an instrument.  The outline, the channel on the purfling, the purfling itself.  

    In making a replica of the Goldberg (ex Baron Vitta) violin I notice, that the black has the same thickness of the white, both being uneven.  The black is also lighter in color in some areas, in the C bout the outside section of the black is also thinner, this is typical as it was easier to thin down the inner part of it using a scraper.
