Comments:

Neck, pegbox, head, fingerboard, and tailpiece not original (made by previous owner, Ralf Bergholz, in 1977), hence no string length reported by owner. 2-piece table, 1-piece back of Swedish maple, both with scribed perimeter “purfling”. Repair labels “Jonas Elg, Stockholm Renovatum 1726”; by Johan öberg, “dated prob. 1757” when he was still working for Sven Beckman; and by Ralf Bergholz.
