Cello fingerboard has slight up appearance

Friday, July 6, 2007 @7:53:26 AM

Hello, I recieve  numerous violin family instruments for repair, that come from the school up the road from here. The class is a college class although there are children in it mostly kids 7 to  mid teens then a few adults, called Orchestra workshop. some of these kids are very abusive and when they get a instrument they arent instructed to take care of it properly.       I have five cellos I just got in that two of these have their finger board  starting to bow up ward toward the mid section of it, is this normal, ?  it doesnt look normal,  is there amy repair method for this or is it supposed to be this way.?  if it is called relief  how much?    I havent any information on Cello's except a  a booklet of Useful Measurements for  violin makers,, by Henry Strobel, it doesnt say much about instruments when a person comes upon these sort of things. any help would be much appreciated.     I thought about taking some Rock Maple and ebonizing it and replacing the fingerboard, but this is a exspensive task and the school doesnt want to spend too much money, their funds are limited,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, thankyou  for help on this ,,,,,,,,,Dennis in Arizona 3 comments
