The Fiddle My Dad's Father Made
If you remember one of my recent posts, I wrote about the fiddle that my Dad recently got. It is one of 21 that his father made. This one is the first we've gotten to see. It is number 11 and was made in 1929. Here is a video of my Dad and I taking turns playing it. I did some minor repair work on it, but tried to leave it in as original condition as I could. It got a new fingerboard, a "new" vintage bridge, and new strings. Praise God for answered prayers!
