This model combines all the benefits of master luthiers’ plate tuning techniques with the special German-style multi-layer shaded spirit varnish. The result is a modestly priced master instrument with outstanding projection, tone color, and playability. The tonewoods are beautifully flamed European maple and premium spruce, enhanced by the luminous hand-applied varnish.
