[Unpublished, from owner: F+B (color)]

Not in Senn & Roy 1986. Flat back but square shoulders. Had 4 strings and cello neck when Robb acquired it; he left neck but added wider fingerboard and redrilled pegbox. Per Benjamin Schröder, labels with printed date “165-” and beginning with J (not I) used until c. 1657.
