Comments:

[Unpublished, from owner: front body only (color)]

Neck by Ingo Muthesius (1981), replacing what owner calls “a thick 6-string neck” (presumably not original) plus “very narrow” pegbox and “nice carved King David head” with copies of those on W. Kuijken’s Bertrand. Table has double purfling; also purfling around soundholes.
