[By TGM: FB+S body only, head FB+S, C-bouts, table ornament, plugged 7th hole in pegbox, etc. (color)]

5-piece table with floral ornament, back with diamond patterns at bottom and below fold, both with double purfling; small open scroll, pegbox finely stippled on back and sides, with plugged hole for 7th string and, on lower back, small stamped inscription: CHERON; graft to neck, which is probably modern (purfling V at top of back has horizontal top line instead of rising to neck heel). Shouders of table seemingly enlarged by 1-2 mm in area ±20 cm from neck. Bridge by Monical, positioned 2/3 down length of C-holes.
