Made in Czechoslovakia in the workshop of John Juzek, the instrument is very good condition with no issues. The oil varnish is amber/brown on a golden base that has developed a lovely patina. it has undergone a completely new set up in our workshop including new pegs, a new bridge and sound post and new fittings. It has D'Addario Helicore strings and a wither tailpiece. Would perfectly suit an advanced student on a budget.
