New Vitar discovered! V5-P-15

I recently had a call from Mr. W. Nelson Louderback in Colorado who has a Vitar he’s had since about 1997. It was left for repair at his violin shop and to this day remains unrepairable… the electronics seem to be shot and as you may imagine, schematics are a little difficult to find. This particular example V5-P-15 is a 5-string in white, no purfling, silver/aluminium control plate and pearl Schaller tuners. The most interesting feature is a red rose stencil on the body which seems to be a part of the finish and not applied later. It’s not a standard option according to the price list so perhaps a custom request from the original owner.
