Visit to Tibor Sörös and Ernie Schmidt

Tibor's comments

- need to be much more careful of smoothness
- profile is not consistent, particularly in top - i.e. sharp rise from edge, flattens out and then rises again
- edge of instrument (purfling area) is too low - should be less deep compared to main body and edge
- corners too short at "C" bouts
- curve of neck at body is wrong - should be in line with ribs at that point, then curve into neck
- fingerboard not flush with edges of neck
- scroll should be more pronounced and undercut on volute
- arc of edge esp. at bottom front is inconsistent
- broken rib should not have been used.

Ernie's comment: nice work
