That tail piece is a cut off piece of fret board that was too long for the ukulele I built earlier. I left the frets on out of laziness.

Thanks Gary. It might be misleading if I said my fiddle has frets...it does but in a different place.

I'd say that the 'bonus' frets are an aesthetic feature!  Great picture, Jim!  Love this fiddle!
