9 strings. (only three pegs remain). No fret markings on finger-board (suggesting that there were either no frets or that they were made of gut and tied on); evidence of three frets on the sound board. Minimal decoration. 21 ribs. Soundboard cracked. The nut has had some alteration of the grooves of strings and the tail-piece has had additional string holes drilled. Some holes are close together perhaps indicating some strings were double course. Decorative carved pattern around sound-board hole.
