I am currently having trouble with a stubborn peg. Since the weather changed, it started slipping so much that i had to jam it in the violin head.
I had to push it quite far so it wouldnt wobble. I was not comfortable with it being pushed so far, so i took for my luthier to take a look. He drilled a new hole in the peg (for the string) and said it was OK. I am not sure it is really OK. should I take it to another luthier? I think it doesnt look right.
Here is how it looks like (G string). It doesnt affect the playing, but i am not sure I won't damage the pegbox by pushing the peg so far.
