When the term "rustic" is included in an item's description or title, it means that the piece has numerous defects, such as checks, cracks, incursions, knots, or other defects that may present issues when working with it. We will describe the defects as thoroughly as possible, but there may be some that are not specifically described or are more serious than what is visible by just looking at the wood. These pieces should not be used for any type of instrument and it is recommended that an epoxy or another similar substance is used to stabilize the wood.
