I have a new used violin and tried to use one of the fingerless fret guides (its like violin fingertape, but much better) I got from the internet, but my teacher said that the markings were in the wrong place for my violin to be in tune when playing the notes. I checked online and they said that the violin should be 330mm from bridge to nut, and if it is, then the product should work.
So, I measured my violin and it is a little under 330mm from bridge to nut. So, I checked online and it seemed like one place said 12.75 inches, which is less than 330 mm, but mine is more than 12.75 inches (but less than 330mm) from one to the other. So, now I am confused. Can you all tell me what it should be?
Also, does it absolutely have to be that distance? Or, do I need to take it to someone to have the bridge moved?
