I recieved a new violin last Christmas and its very good. Its just when I play it the black color from the fingerboard gets on my fingers. My mom tried wiping it with a damp paper towel thinking that it was just because it was new but it looked like it was all coming off so I made her stop. It now looks like its fading from where the strings are lying and in other places. Is this normal? Is there anything I can put on my fingerboard to make it stop coming off or to make it look dark again if it does fade? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
