And this is a recent left-handed 8 course version in English yew with ebony lines between the ribs, and snakewood/yew stripes up the back of the neck and pegbox. The fingerboard also has a snakewood central panel. The pegs are made of cocobolo, my favourite wood for pegs as it is very stable in different climates.
