I loaned my fiddle to an old man. He had it for almost two years and he just passed away and I got my violin back but noticed that the bridge is glued to the body (a messy job too). It is an old fiddle and I don't want to throw it away. Is there any way I can fix it myself? I took it to the luthier but he wanted close to $500 as he says the instrument top may need to be re-varnished. I don't think the violin is even worth that much as it is a student fiddle. Any ideas?
