This is one of the most beautiful instruments I have ever restored. The bridge & nut pins are perfectly spaced, the jacks function flawlessly, and the keyboards are perfectly cut and balanced. A perfectly made instrument. Restrung, voiced in white Delrin, for a private party. (Click on images to enlarge.)

Pictured is a Flemish double by John Shortridge [undated, circa 1975] which recently underwent a complete restoration in my workshop. Originally a non-transposing instrument, it has been converted to a 415/440 transposing instrument. Voiced in white Delrin, it features a full soundboard painting by the well known Sheridan Germann.
