The neck was made to fit an
English 12in vintage pot. For the
inlays, the little heel carving and
the head shape, it is more or less
in the style of the early Fairbanks
of the 1880's as seen on the site of
Bill Michall (see the link page). I
have added mosaic inlays of my own
and an extention of the scooped end
to give a rest to the thumb when it
hits the 5th string.
Steel strings, old Clifford Essex calfskin head.
