Comments:

[Unpublished, from Stephan Schürch 4/07: FB+S, head 3/4 and side, rosette (color)]

1-piece back, slab cut, with original fold now flattened out. Rosette in table, positioned rather low (bisected by line between upper body corners). Neck not original, but head and pegbox probably are; current fingerboard and tailpiece are dark brown, with the lower end of the fingerboard scalloped. Interior barring old but probably not original. Informant is sales agent for estate; no information about provenance; dimensions given only to nearest cm, and no string length because not original.
