The instrument was built from a mix of a modern Neapolitan model and a modern Portuguese one with a flat bottom. The cover is made of European pine wood and the bottom and the sides are made of Brazilian rosewood. It has a metal strap and a wooden bridge. There are mother of pearl ornaments on tortoise shell, in the form of a butterfly and floral motifs on the soundboard. Other mother of pearl decorations also, around the soundhole. There are four sets of strings tuned in Gl2-D3-A3- and E4. The strings are picked with a plectrum. There are fissures on the head and on the back part of the resonance box.
