Comments:

Body shape similar to that seen in Ganassi, Regola Rubertina (1542), with square shoulders and slightly pointed corners; probably a much later copy of that model (label could be either the original maker or from a repair). 2 pegs treble, 3 bass side; blond fingerboard and tailpiece with perimeter purfling lines plus diamond patterns at lower end of both.
