P.S. to my previous note --
The two-joint instrument doesn't have four tenons, but it does have four
points of access for modifying the bore (three tenons and one socket).
Just in case anyone is going to dredge up the argument about Buffet
trying to find a use for short pieces of grenadilla, take a look at the
length of a barrel. There are plenty of ways for them to use short stock
without having to dream up a really fiddly new Eb design.
