Comments:

[Unpublished, from K. Martius, ultimately from E. Fontana: F+B 7/8]

Not in Martius 2015. Neck not original, made by Olov Gibson (replacing a shorter one, also not original). Fingerboard, tailpiece and pegs also not original. Ink purfling on front and back, which are both 2-piece. Rather high arching. Boxwood veneer on fingerboard. Measurements perhaps only ± 0.5 cm. Repair label: “Jonas Elg / Renovavit / Holmia / 1730”.
