Exotic-looking trade instrument make in 2005. The one-piece tiger maple back and ribs display an amazing amount of figure, and the spruce top is accented by the shading of the brown/orange varnish that replicates slight wear. The instrument is dressed with boxwood fittings, of which the pegs have mother-of-pearl Parisian eyes, and a German Wittner tailpiece completes the setup.
