Its soundboard is made out of spruce wood and has three round shaped sound holes, one larger one in the center and two smaller ones below on the sides.

SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS

There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings every 3-4 months. It is always a good idea to keep an extra set of stings to replace any that may break. You should always wipe down your strings with a clean dry cloth after use. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.

What is BLEMISHED?

Blemished, or Scratch & Dent, products are new and unused with superficial irregularities that do not affect the playability or sound quality of the instrument. The irregularities may include, finish blisters, scratches, dents, stains, discoloration, rust or pitting on metals, imperfect glazes, non-structural repairs such as putty in nail holes, or other surface marks. These blemished products have codes which end in -1(s) and -2(s). A product designated as -1 or -1S has minor blemishes and a product code ending in -2 or -2S has moderate blemishes and/or minor repairs.

Our product codes ending in "PROP" are unable to be played and are for display purposes only.

Please note: For safety during shipping, we don't tune our string instruments before sending to customers.
