I bought a violin from www.corilon.com, whom are known for being very professional and the owner insisted that it's set to international standards.
The G string is about 7 mm high from the fingerboard and the E string is 5 mm.
I have checked several website and it seems that the distance between G and the fingerboard should be around 5.5 mm while for the E it should be around 3.5 mm.
My violin is German made by Georg Winterling in 1922.
Any idea why this discrepancy and what should be the exact distance?
