I have a 1939 Alfred Meyer German carved roundback(3/4 size). It sounds and plays nice except for two things. First- there is a heavy wolftone while bowing an "A" or "Ab" on the "A" string(high position). Second- a crack in the top was incorrectly repaired some time ago. The remedy involves removing the top and then taking off the bassbar in order to correctly re-repair the crack and then re-install the bassbar. The "E" string is presently a little on the under-powered side. I might invest in a good Los Angeles area repair job if it might help. Anyone have any thoughts?
