Comments:

Modern neck and pegbox, but Monical says head is original; 2-piece table and back. Not included in Hebbert 2003b, p. 39. Table ornament featuring a single very large flower matches that of anonymous English bass DHV 1354; double purfling on table and back, no other decoration on back. Semi-light fingerboard and tailpiece with perimeter purfling.
