The Pennsylvania Cherry used in this mandolin is nicely quartersawn, there were a couple of small pitch pockets in the back that were filled with epoxy, but the wood is solid and of good tonal quality. I would not put this wood in a higher level instrument but it works nicely in a Level 1 instrument.
