Vázquez to TGM, 2001/02 (and visit 12/06)
Vázquez website (F+B body only, detail of soundholes, head front and 3/4 [color]) & exhibition 2010 (front [color])
5-piece table with single purfling (also around soundholes); mahogany back and ribs with no purfling. New neck and pegbox, fingerboard and tailpiece. Website says “by William Turner, c. 1650”; e-mail of 11/02 explains this is based on perceived similarity to Turner bass in Nice (ABON 1 = Fleming’s VME 28). Head is probably Spanish.
