The back is made of two splendid pieces of highly flamed maple, the curl horizontal. The ribs, neck and head are of the same wood, and original.
The f holes are very nicely carved, the purfling, the corners and the edges work are. The varnish, of an orange-brown color on a golden ground, is original and in a perfect condition.
