A few more photos would be nice. But this seller has a lot of good reviews from folks who have purchased other vintage items from him, so this just might be the real deal. It looks like it to me, but I'm no expert on Bedrossian. Good luck to the buyer.

...and the high bid skyrockets from $499 to $910. This is what happens when you publicize a great buy.

Does anyone have an explanation for the single treble course and and the funny little one string bridge etc?

I have 2 ideas, neither one of them 100% convincing.

I seem to remember that there was a discussion here a few years back about the same or similar setup on another oud (or was it this one?) but I can find no trace of it.

And what are those little animals chasing each other on the little rosettes? Lions? Squirrels?

Of course. I should have realized.

And that funny little bridge and the little nail in the bowl: that must be the remnants of a squirelion trap!

I'm always surprised of how high can get the bids just for the reason the oud is old...regardless of its state or of a try.
Actually I begin to think good ouds are structurally not made to get very old. But maybe just a personnel taste because the more I play the more I like reactive sounding instrument,which means fragile soundboard . This one for example may turn very mute
one may told me its difficult to find traditional Arabic oudmakers nowadays, this I disagree. I think we have really nice Syrian, Palestinian, Lebanese,Egyptian makers

get rid of everything before https and an image is viewable. I found a total of 2 photos. The photo of the fingerboard if had included the nut might help solve the mystery of the single treble course. We could see the slots and see if there are any single string slots. The second slot reveals another mystery I hadn't noticed before. The pick guard goes right over a decorative inlay. Who would do that and why?

I believe flickr won't let you "hotlink", so the img tag won't work. You just have to present the links by themselves.

Imgur will allow hotlinking, I think.
For the img tag to work, the link has to end in .jpg, .gif, or .png
