Violin passion part IV

Here we go, no matter if the weather is cold, rainy, gray, pushing down, who care!
Sure we get some new snow in the mountains and when the sun show up will be perfect.
I have my own light to keep me up! The violin make new steps forward and make me lucky.
The final assembly of the body was successful. Well I must to made all the clams new, but this help really to get the instrument into right shape. On the photo bellow we clearly see the parts before assembly. Closer look on the parts show us the construction and innovations on the master piece. The rib of violin is completed with sandwich of wood and carbon fiber /45deg CFK and wood vertical/. The belly and the back /plank ;-)/ are of full spruce wood and the neck is maple. The fingerboard, what else then ebony, so great material to work with. The main core innovation is the carbon tube connecting the neck and the button at the end of instrument. The tube will translate all the forces of the strings to release the body to be free for vibrations.
Well done on this point, let's free the ideas to the life and make some music out of it!

What's come next, sure final tuning, the strings, bridge, peg's and start to play on!
