Thanks a lot for replying to me.
There is one crack on the lower joint that starts at the tenon and goes into the screw hole for the thumb rest.
Another one starts at the tenon and goes to the 1st tone hole/chimney, I am not sure if it goes through the chimney.
The bell has two cracks, one from the bottom half-way up, through the whole thickness of the wood, and another crack from the top down about 1cm long.
The post on the bell is glued with crazy/super glue.
The keys are movable and seem straight, none are frozen.
The question is if it's worth fixing.
I understand that a highly capable tech (like you) can sort all the problems.
But it's different for a consumer who would need to sell the instrument and (hopefully) recover the money spent.
Ohh, I was able to read that "unreadable" line under magnifying glass.
It says "Made in France".
Again, thanks for your help.
