Can anybody ID this instrument?

Recommended Posts

It looks like it started life as a Lachenal, only it's had its action pivots and fretwork replaced.


Its owner, and/or modifier, in 1899 appears to have been George Abel Lester (1872-1961) of Dover, Kent - who was (not surprisingly in the light of the framing work that's been done to the ends, or what appear to be screw-eyes for action pivots) a picture framer.
