Are violins generally "hes" or "shes"? I know that according to the Italian (violino) they should be masculine but in Russian it is a skripka which is feminine. Are violins always "she" like a boat?
And do people have names for their violins? For some reason, I always name mine Max--my half size was "baby Max" and my 3/4 was Max, and my current violin is Monsieur Max, and my second (which was made by my great-great grandfather,Max Fink, and it's not actually that bad) is named Grandpa Max.
