March 19, 2008 at 12:37 PMThree months after having the violin adjusted to perfection - that adjustment including having the neck raised - and during one of the busiest times in my life, I had an accident....
...the neck popped out of the instrument.
Before everyone gets alarmed, it was quite a clean break - it simply slipped out of the socket like a bone would.
Will be picking it up today - the day before opening night of a show and less than two weeks before playing two concerti.
This life we have...many thanks to the folks at Wilhite Strings in Knoxville, Tennessee for stepping up to the plate and Linda Upton Hill (a cast member and string player) for making the call within seconds!
Go for it!
