November 12, 2017, 7:42 AM · Close to a "hollywood" in many ways.
November 12, 2017, 8:40 AM · Sadly,it's not Stuber also,and yes,looks like Hollywood,right? :) It looks like a mix od those 3 models. And this is the most comfoartable i ever tried in my life.
November 12, 2017, 10:40 AM · teka?
November 12, 2017, 11:32 AM · U know this. It's not either of those models :(
November 12, 2017, 4:01 PM · Guarneri or Hollywood would be my guess.
November 12, 2017, 4:13 PM · or Paganini-- no more guesses for me
November 12, 2017, 7:44 PM · Might be a custom job. Where did you come across it?
November 13, 2017, 4:31 AM · Actually,you might be right. Nowadays different factories make different vermeer models. I just found on one Spanish luthiers site,what I think is the same model and shape I'm looking for. What do you think
November 13, 2017, 12:02 PM · That looks like my in-house made chin-rest from the Weisshaar shop, LA. It is probably the same as the Hollywood chin rest.
November 17, 2017, 1:17 PM · Us bearded people are always especially particular in our choices of chinrests :) I've taken to modifying standard chinrests to find something that works for me.
November 17, 2017, 3:11 PM · Guanneri? Really? It seems more smooth and rounded, less sharp and pointy.
November 17, 2017, 3:35 PM · Looks like the one I use and I completely forgot the brand name. My body geometry loves it but some people tuck my violin under their chin and the look on their face is priceless.
November 23, 2017, 3:08 PM · Sorry this isn't really relevant to the topic at all, but Bojan, you put a space after a comma. Sorry. This kind of stuff freaks me out and triggers my inner OCD.
November 24, 2017, 7:02 PM · Harrison, how about all of us who learned to put two spaces after a period? HTML does not recognize that.
