Classic tie-bridge construction with the top and back binding and bound fretboard handcrafted from Bigleaf Maple wood harvested from the Pacific Northwest. Elegant top abalone shell rosette and top purfling with black-white-black accent lines on the top and back of the instrument, adding to the beauty of this functional piece of art.
