Since 1924, the German workshop of Franz Sandner has produced exceptional instruments which express a true love of music. This FS500A model is ideal for the advancing player seeking a full, robust sound with clarity in the lower registers and brilliance in the upper registers. Patiently-aged European tonewoods are carved with special care, precision, and expert knowledge. Tastefully antiqued deep brown varnish over golden ground for a classic "old German" look. Parisian eye ebony pegs, carbon graphite endpin, Despiau "B" level French bridge, Wittner tailpiece. Adjusted with Larsen A & D, Magnacore G & C strings. 4/4 only.
