The solid soundboard is cedar and back & sides are laminated Indian rosewood. The fingerboard is ebony while the bridge and headstock veneer are rosewood again. The tuners are gold plated and there is a colourful rosette. The guitar is strung with D’Addario EXP very high tension strings.
The cedar soundboard provides a wonderfully rich tone. The voluntary reviewers on Harmony Central rated this instrument 9 out of 10 for sound quality and gave it an overall rating of 93%.
