This gorgeous Bookmatched Figured African Padouk Bowed Psaltery is unlike any I've ever made! Virtually all the Padouk I've ever used is quarter-sawn with very straight grain. This one is "Flat" cut, deep red with subtle and beautiful "curl." I've trimmed it with Australian Lacewood Edge Binding, Bridge and Outer Rosette. The Inner Rosette is a stained Maple to match the tops color. It has a Cherry back and side rails and Northern Rock Maple Pin Block. This instrument ranges from middle C up to F (two and a half octaves above middle C). It comes with an adjustable horsehair bow, tuning wrench, rosin, tuning chart, extra strings and an instruction and care booklet.

I grabbed this piece of wood the minute I saw it. Of all the African Padouk I've used over the years ... this could be the coolest grain figure of them all!
