The »Standard«-model is the more elaboratly decorated version of the solid built Sonntag archtop. The optical outfit reflects the high effort of manufacture and the no-compromise sound that is already known from the »Ballade« model. In addition to the white body-bindings it has white neck-, headstock- and f-hole-bindings and multi-ply white/black strips. The fingerboard has mother-of-pearl block inlays, the headstock is ornamented with a rhomb-like mother-of-pearl inlay. The tailpiece consists of Ebony, the hardware is gold-plated.
