The neck has an early style "hippy" peghead, a fancy 5th peg cut

The Pot

A typical F&C laminated pot with rosewood inside and out.
The brackets are attached with screws through the wall.
The tonering is a perforated hollow brass ring placed so that it is
just a little wider than the pot and a little higher than the inner wall.

The bridge and tailpiece are replacements as are 4 of the ivory pegs and the ivory nut.
