Hi Douglas,

My name is ***** ***** I"m happy to help.

There's one part of your question that is a little confusing me. You say, "I have a fiddle passed down to me and would like to know if it could be the same." The same as what?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
the same one he made.

You wnt to know if the fiddle you have is the one your great grandfather made? I can value it for you, but there is no way to tell who made it without a label inside or other provenance. Do you still want me to value it for you?
