So I'm finally getting around to upgrading my instrument from an incredibly low-quality student instrument to something decent for a fairly advanced player (currently learning the Saint-Saëns Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, and my current violin really isn't cutting it). My family and I are taking a trip to Portland soon (due to an utter lack of decent craftsmen in my state) in order to get me a new instrument.
I was wondering if any of you had suggestions for reputable luthiers in the Portland or Portland-adjacent areas that have a varied selection of instruments suitable, and I'd rather not just go to the first luthier recommended on Google.
