It has 7 etched diamond and square fingerboard inlays in 5 fret positions, grained ivoroid body bindings, a bevelled edge “Deiren” faux tortoise pick guard. Small Herringbone against an ebony background surrounds the face, wood parquetry zipper back stripe bisects the back; mostly vertical grain, mainly mocha coloured with this black contrasting stripes. It sports a two piece Brazilian Rosewood back with matching somewhat swirlier grained sides. The headstock is squared; the back of the neck is solid one piece Mahogany with nary an “ear” to be found. A nickel-plated strap button penetrates the treble side of the neck heel.
