GUEST,Arkie My new (Fairfax) violin (19) RE: My new (Fairfax) violin 07 Oct 15


Fairfax offered to give me a violin back in the 1970s and I would not take it because I thought I would be taking advantage of him. He said it was a tradition for violin makers to give away early instruments. But I still thought he would be able to sell it. In those days, Fairfax made fiddles in the Ozark Folk Center instrument shop and I played in a makeshift band that Fairfax put together for Folk Center performances. We were good friends in those days, but I have since lost track of him. He was a memorable character.

I am glad to come across this post and very happy to know he still works at the craft and has success in selling the instruments. I will try to track him down if the info linked above does not work.
