It’s silent ... gotta leave the lacquer to harden a few weeks before tuning up. No tension on those strings yet.

im sure it'll sound exactly the same as before!

Very impressive result! That looks like a professional restoration. Well done! Now buy your wife something nice in the January sales...

Looks like she could do with a new corset - the old one looks to have shrunk.

That is a lovely job, you must feel a great sense of satisfaction from such  transformation.  The grain is just alive now!

Heh, almost certainly not. It was a labour of love, over a couple of weeks. Can’t afford to take that time off work!! Would love to though, if I could afford the time.

I can see why luthiers charge a couple of grand to do one... probly
