Posted too quickly. Can anyone tell 4 versus 5 from photographs of the Wolverines? Any string players astute enough to tell from recordings?

I think the Doyle's Dance Academy photo is probably the best shot at determining four versus five strings, but I can't really tell.

Dustin:
The white shirt-front may camouflage it, but it DOES seems as if the 5th string tuning knob is missing. In Ms McPartland's photo, the replacement looks as large as the ones on the head, and it sticks out where it ought to show in the Doyle's picture.

Well, here's one with the knob showing.
