  • Condition:

    This instrument is in lovely, very well-cared-for, original condition with so few marks on it that overall it is 'very near new'. The back, sides and rear of the neck are as new. The front has the tiniest of hard-to-see, superficial polish marks. Looks wonderful.

  • Comments:

    This is a fine, open-sounding instrument from Rohan with fullness in the bass, clear singing trebles will excellent balance. The string tension feels just right, offering ease of vibrato yet good speed of attack. This flexible, traditional sound makes it very suitable for wide range of repertoire.
    A really lovely, hand-crafted instrument with refined, clear sound all at very sensible price.
