This rare & unique tiple came to us in pieces, with the neck, body & bridge apart, and the back separating from the sides on the shoulders. We reset the neck, re-fretted the fingerboard & fabricated a new ebony bridge with a bone saddle. We glued the sides & back together as best we could, but there is an area on the shoulder that could not be pushed back together (pictured). The wood is not moving and everything on the inside is glued in place and stable.

It features:
Solid Spruce Top
Solid (Either Cuban Mahogany or Koa) Back & Sides
New Ebony Bridge w/ Bone Saddle
1.5" Nut Width
17" Scale Length
Includes Original Chipboard Case
