Had a very weak moment yesterday, bought 7 fiddles, 5 bows, 3 tenor banjos, 1 banjo-mando, 1 guitar-uke, 1 archtop guitar and, the pick of the litter (on left), an old Dobson 5-string. All except one bow & one fiddle are repairable, so I'll be busy this winter.

Wow, my weak moments are eating a full bar of chocolate. I like yours much better.

Are my eyes fooling me, or are some of those fiddles 3/4 size?

Sandra - full disclosure..... my wife Linda also bought some turquoise jewelry from the dealer (got a good price), and we DID eat some chocolate on the way home. Otherwise, we're usually very responsible adults.
Rizo - Nope, the dealer had one 3/4 fiddle which I didn't buy. Interestingly, all but one of the fiddles had gut strings.

Interesting... some look bigger than the rest. I wouldn't mind trying my hand at one of those fiddles when you get 'em into playing shape.

Oh my, Mark. It's a good thing we don't live nearby. I can see right now we wouldn't be good for each other's will power. Craig Oh my.
