particular care given to ensuring as pure tone as is achievable after final assembly, this was made possible by being played extensively "in the white" before any varnish was applied, this was to determine if there was need to dismantle the body for further tonal adjustments. The final body Helmholtz frequency was 220Hz while the Body resonant frequency was 440Hz (A), both in perfect harmony. It must be played to be believed!
