Tuners, tailpiece, frets, a body and a neck. Except for those items, they've left just about everything off this instrument! The peghead, with the Mid-Missouri name burned into the edge, is obviously super narrow to save wood. The only decorative element is the binding around the top. Mid-Missouri even leaves that off the model "0."
BUT, the workmanship is first class. All solid woods - maple back and sides on this model "2" with a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Priced very reasonably, this instrument is a great "starter" mandolin.
