Lachenal Bowing Valve Slots

Recommended Posts

Although not fitted with any bowing valves, this Lachenal 48 EC has two oval slots in the fretwork in front of the thumbstrap on both sides.


Anybody have any idea what the second smaller one would have been for? (And yes, I know someone is going to suggest they're for a stick shift and a clutch!)


Of course, it could just be a fretwork design thing, and I found photos of a few others online with both loops, but it does seem a bit strange.
