This is a strange one that I couldnít help getting! As many of you probably know, Adam Hurtís iconic slot head Dobson is spun inside AND out and has the silver bell tonering. I owned a virtually identical one and know of a couple others built the same way. Anyway, this came to me without a tension hoop or hooks/nuts. The pot is too big for the silver bell tonering and I didnít see the marks that would indicate it was once there. So itís a double spun Dobson but no SB. Anyhoo, Iíve gotten her back upright with Rickard shoes and hooks w period nuts. Original strike plate and tailpiece. Very fine condition with a gorgeous skin head. Sounds amazing.
