Decidedly different and truly delightful. Those beveled edges are not just pretty and comfortable … they are part of the unique structure of this instrument. They are rigid rims, carved out of single pieces of wood, that the top and back essentially “float” inside of. Do let me know if I can demo this one for you online. Wow!
