At The Farm, we don’t rely on bland manufacturer stock photos - we physically photograph one of each model to show a better representation of the product. Some minor details like wood grain and color finish can, and may vary slightly from the pictures below.
Rest assured, just like on all of our serialized products each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff.
