On museum’s website: front (color)

Rebuilding of neck has damaged lower part of pegbox; modern fingerboard and tailpiece (including fine tuner for top string); 3 pegs treble, 2 bass side. Bridge marked with name of Vidoudez, luthier in Geneva (perhaps also responsible for the other conversion work?). [Not seen by TGM on museum visit 7/05.]
