Your instrument’s memory

This notebook contains all of the useful information, related to its purchase:

Every time a luthier intervenes, you can ask that they note down what they did, for example, tuningcleaningrepairs or modifications. You can then keep track of its care and known when the last time, for example, the last time the bow was strung or when the strings were last changed.

Knowing everything that has happened to an instrument saves the luthier time, allowing him to tailor his intervention and provide valuable advice and insight. In applying his stamp, the luthier certifies the work that was carried out. And you keep the proof of what has been done.
