Suddenly a big smile on my face and difficult to put the instrument down again.
There are of course flaws as well. For $400 you can't get everything.
- The bows are not very good and I managed to break at least 10 hairs in the first hour of playing.
- The sound-post was cut badly (too short) and was pulled out closer to the f-holes to stay in place.
- The bridge was sanded on one side instead of evenly planed on both.
- The strings are steel-core and would much nicer if switched to high quality synthetic core.
