Comments:

Neck by Ingo Muthesius (1981), replacing what owner calls “a thick 6-string neck” (presumably not original; still in his possession) plus “very narrow” pegbox and “nice carved King David head” with copies of those on W. Kuijken’s Bertrand. Table has double purfling, also purfling around soundholes; back has none.
