Comments:

Repair inscriptions (both handwritten in pencil): “Revisto de / W-Jurke Bebie [?] / 1925”; “Rep. in Shann F.L. / Dez. 1947 ----”. Pegbox had in its original state only 4 holes. Pegbox (now six holes but still original) and scroll are very similar to a cello’s.... Neck, fingerboard, and tailpiece are new.”
