Back is of two pieces of quartersawn wood with a rich curvy grain. Table is of one piece of quartersawn spruce, with a straight grain narrow on the right, and widening to a curvy knot pattern on the left. Fingerboard and pegs are of a dark brown wood. None of the natural wooden parts have any substatial burl pattern, but faux flames have been painted on by hand on the back, ribs, neck, and scroll. The proportions are good, even with the diminutive size.
