Thanks guys. I know what you mean, tandm3, it has a real hand made feel to it. I can't believe how good it sounded without even changing the strings. I've no idea when it was last played. It's the bridge that amazes me. It's just a piece of shaped wood that is inserted between the strings and the body and can obviously be moved about. Is this common? I'm guessing the MEEAAOOOOOOWWWW that's written on the body is to indicate where the bridge should be placed. Of course I only discovered this after moving it around to get the intonation sounding ok. Loving it!
