Vázquez 1993, p. 10

Vázquez website (F+S body only, rosette, bass soundhole [color]); Vázquez 1993, pl. 8-9 (F+B body only with table removed [color])

Published photos show body only, with top off. Missing rosette in table. Dendrochronology test (by Peter Klein) gives date of 1729 for youngest growth ring on 1-piece table; wood from same tree as Vázquez’s other festooned treble whose youngest ring dates from 1712. (These two instruments were formerly attributed to Marcell Pichler, Salzburg, c. 1660.)
