The table is medium to fine. Grained spruce and the 1-piece back, as well as ribs and neck, is maple. Quite low angle of the fingerboard.There's a cylindrical wooden inlay on the neck (see detailed photo). Like always the instrument has been completely checked by our luthiers and by our violin player on playability. It received a new set up with newly fitted elder ebony pegs & tailpiece, an elder ebony chinrest, a newly fitted bridge and new strings. These are new German silver wound steel core strings with good projection, easy to play while allowing rapid finger performance.
