Comments:

2-piece table and back; single purfling on front only; strong flame on ribs and back, slanting upward from joint. Neck has been narrowed, has fairly round profile, and is set at a considerable angle; integral with pegbox, whose head is probably post-18th-C. Hookbar replaced with tailgut. No corner blocks, or back braces except soundpost plate. To be restored by J. Kraft (new neck, keeping present head) and then sold.
