Looking for a good source for a violin neck and finger board. Has anyone got one off of Ebay? Are they good? If not Is there any other place to go for better quality? 

Thanks!

Looking to make my first CBV. Not skilled enough to carve my own neck.

One of the problems with a standard pre-carved fiddle neck for a cbv is that heel block.  You have to do some work to take it down to the size you need and the angle you need.  I used   dowel running from the neck to the tail for extra strength -- I don't think a cigar box can take the stress.

I think all pre-carved ones are pretty much the same in the budget category.  There are fancier ones, but not sure that would warrant the expense.  You can shop here:  https://www.internationalviolin.com/SearchByKeyword.aspx?word=neck for example.

Thanks for the link Dian in Chicago. Lot of interesting stuff there.
