I found this old quote in a book about Stradavari I read. Someone had worked on the masters violin and labeled the repair this way after narrowing the ribs. I’m not sure what this label says is always the best course of action. We have to be good enough to know what the maker was envisioning at the time of it’s creation. What a slippery slope this is.
