 The mouth rosette has been carved into the lid itself, and remains complete despite the years.

 It is in optimal condition for playing, with a very comfortable action, without buzzing or fretting, and perfectly stable, working perfectly and tuning well on all frets.

It is strung with new nylon strings.

It has the figure of the edelweis flower carved on the blade. It maintains the shellac varnish with excellent shine and its shape is more stylized than other models.
