~ Looking at electric violins I can't afford ~

Me: I like that one, but it would have a great Devil-went-down-to-Georgia vibe if it were gold-coloured

~ Further down the electric luthier rabbit-hole than I like to admit ~

Me: Wait

HALP SOMEONE TALK ME OUT OF BUILDING MY OWN ELECTRIC FIDDLE-MADE-OF-GOLD*

_____________
* Fiddle may be only gold-coloured and not contain any actual gold

Btw, carefully note the year of the date on the first post of this thread

Once I've made a few adjustments, then I have some gold leaf that I'm going to use to gild the edges, because that was kind of the whole point of this project :P

There we go, final touches applied—the tail and horns now have a bit of gold leaf on them

It is now literally a "shiny fiddle made of gold"

@bgcarlisle Amazing work!

Like you say, definitely could be gold-colored. Even just a gold hint. :P

@mdm I have gold leaf that I'm going to use to gild the edges now that I know it works haha

@bgcarlisle i should hope so, you've got a fiddle with a backstory longer than i've been on Fedi

@raspberry_boy Please forgive the tuning

Also, there are some bits that need to be fixed to make it more playable

But HERE WE GO

@bgcarlisle Hey, out-of-tune or not, that was still pretty good!

@bgcarlisle Wow! You made that! And you can play it! I mean… wow! ✨

@bgcarlisle @raspberry_boy I’m seriously impressed give us some when you have the tuning tweaked! amaze
