Front two-piece, fine-grained, highly arched, with very little depression; C-shaped soundholes; single purfling on front and back; scallop-carved semi-domed block under fingerboard at neck to give greater strength to neck/body joint; applied maple plug and scroll-work on the front at tail, covering a strengthening screw into tailblock. Ribs and one-piece back of maple; the ribs taper from tail to neck. Long neck and pegbox with scroll; pegs with mother-of-pearl inserts. Tailpiece of wedge profile to give greater gluing area to front, and with undercutting to provide string-holding portion; probably also screwed on at the point where a mother-of-pearl disc is inlaid.
