Czechoslovakia. Now Czech republic and Slovakia. Czech republic was once Bohemia and Moravia. That area of Europe has gone back and forth between Germany, Hungary and Russia. I can't recall the ac tual time frame when it was united as Czechoslovakia, but it's 20th Century, very short time span.

I know it's not that old for sure....-1713....I was just wondering if you ar anyone had any wasy to date these things from the n umbers submitted...I would love to know the date even roughly that it was made. It's not a rare or priceless fiddle or anywhere close. It does sound and play pretty good, the neck is shaped nice and wide with a thickness that accomidates my hand well. It doesn't have as much "Bottom End" or "Lows" as I fancy but possibly a set up and adjustment of sound post may correct that . My fiddle guy isn't due back till JUne 11th.....I really appreciate you mudbug and everyone that stops by, takes a gander at the board and sends a reply..God bless you all and I look forward to hearing from you all.You can find some of my fiddling around on youtube..try Tommy Preston and something should pop up..my channel there is MrTommypreston. Leave a comment there or give a shout here..I think I have some pics posted there of the Chec. fiddle..I used it on the "Old Time Fiddlin' " video I posted on youtube..you clould heaer and see it there. Again thanks again all!! Have a great Sunday...
