being of standard description in the Florentine body shape (large body scroll and two body points, with smaller scrolls and a point on the headstock) except for one cosmetic feature and that's that it has the "Grey Fox" logo (the "o" in "fox" is two foxes) inlaid in mother of pearl near the center of the headstock.
The Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival is held on the Walsh Farm, Oak Hill, NY annually. It takes place in a quaint rural community in Greene County, 40 minutes south of Albany and 3 hours north of NYC and attracts 20,000 fans from all over the United States and beyond. The roster of artists is a veritable Who's Who of bluegrass. At each festival a major builder makes a special instrument that features the Red Fox logo and the instrument is raffled off. This one was awarded in 2009 to a player who regrettably (we guess) is a lefty. Consequently he didn't play it or use it. It is in ultimately clean and original condition. We find it interesting that the letter "o" in the word "fox" depicts two foxes jumping over one another so as to form a circle. This concerns us because this is not normal activity for a fox and we feel that these particular animals should be checked by a veterinarian.
