Another top-quality instrument from Paul, if you have a look on the photos you can have an idea about his skills as a yiḏaki maker: this wall, fine finish, perfect chisel-work at the bell and mouth, and overall a good choice of log with clear, open aperture. Nice transition, responsive and great acoustics, highly recommended for collectors and serious players.
