I just finished my International Violin F5 kit. The person who said that an F5 compared to a flat top guitar was "1/3 the size and four times the work" was not kidding! I think that I made every mistake in the book but once it is set up (buzzes like hell now), I think it will sound ok. Just don't look too closely.

Glad you got it done. I built 4 mandolins before starting arched guitars. Agree that a F5 is about the most intricate thing around. The effort to carve the scroll and te binding has to be experienced to believe.

Key thing is how it sounds and plays!

carved tops are a lot more work than any flat top
