There is a ding to the top left edge. Three of the pegs match and all work fine. The instrument is extremely playable now. The sound is big and warm with which any professional would be very happy!!! This violin has good construction.
The wood is tight fine grain spruce on the table and lovely flamed maple on the ribs, back, neck. I believe it is worth every penny of that.
