Modified 7/8th sized, gamba cornered , flatback model. The top is two-piece fine grain spruce.  The back is a two-piece flatback of slab cut maple with no graining and with matching ribs.  The neck and scroll are the original. The gears are individual Tyrolean knobbed plate gears, two to a cheek on the scroll.  The instrument was set up for the modern school of steel string playing with a tension-compensating raised saddle with an adjustable bridge. The color of the varnish is a reddish amber, and as of the date of this appraisal, the instrument is in mint condition.
