    The is one short, insignificant surface crack at the bottom centre of the front - nothing to be done.

  • Comments:

    Romanillos instruments need little introduction of course and those who have ordered one, have a very long time to wait.
    This one has a strong, vibrant treble quality, deep bass from its between E and F air resonance and very good overall balance. It seems particularly open and readily sending out a lot of sound; very impressive.
    A fine instrument and a rare buying opportunity.
