Spider ID, is it a recluse?

Just killed this in a drawer, looks like one to me. Anybody familiar with them?

The only good spider is a dead one.

Oh yeah, that's not a recluse.

See the inverted fiddle on the middle section in the second post, and how there are no markings on any of the other body sections. Those are the defining markings of a recluse. Yours did not have the right markings.
