    Indeed he is. And that's quite a look in his eye!

    Thanks you two! It's a great photo of the instrument with its beautiful carved peghead. I have no idea what Bain was going for with the "Fi." part of the title, but we could certainly enhance the title, or add a note to the record for this image next time we update it.
