It arrived Wednesday after a long and tedious journey from Europe.
My supplier has a limited quantity of super select one-piece backs and I now have 2 of them. One of them is hanging on my wall as a decoration...for now.
This is the best quality stock he has harvested in his career. If I was wealthy I would have bought more, but I am grateful for the pieces that I was able to obtain.
I also managed to pick up 2 high quality 2 piece backs. It promises to be a satisfying year for making violins.
