    Just sloppy belly work. When the glue is fresh amateurs think that getting the glue off with a rag as quickly as possible  is what you do. But Nay! Waiting patiently until the glue is just right, then it comes off easily without a trace using a chisel. Looks like they waited and forgot.
    It also looks like the strings need to be seated.

    A hunter's drumbeat steers the stampeding herd,
    His belly growls in hunger to what he sees.
    The mammoth aware blows his mighty trumpet,
    But alas, the caveman tickles the ivories.
