Looks good on my monitor. Nice Fiddle
Looks good to me, as well. That is a nice fiddle. I have a friend who has a five-string, and it sure sounds sweet.
"If you want nice fresh oats, you have to pay a fair price. If you can be satisfied with oats that have already been through the horse; that comes a little cheaper."
Thanks, the 5 string has become my mainstay. Almost 100% of my orders are for 5 strings.
I have tried the Silverfast software that came with the v700 and I am not crazy about it. this is done with Epson scan.

It sounds from your post like you make those. Are those patterns for building it that sit underneath the violin?
One of my friends in the Los Angeles area restores string instruments, and writes condition reports for sales and insurance.
I tried to go down there to shoot his shop but I ended up shooting a couple of violins for his records. Not exactly what had in mind, but I was happy to help him.
Thanks Peret....those are the original plans that I modified to accommodate the 5th string. The plans are the 1742 "Cannone" made by Joseph Guarnari "del Gesu".
I didn't know your username was anything more than a reference to Stradivarius, but you actually make them, cool! I work in instrument repair in the summer down here in south GA, you probably know my employer (he's a viola/bass player). Nice photo too!

Here's a Guarneri I did for 'Vanity Fair' back when there was 5x7 Ektachrome. On loan from the Scala Museum in Milan. Which Of the Guarneri family, I've no idea.
