Saw this on fleaBay , it only says natural top. Is that spruce?

That looks like a FS-5G with a laminate koa body.

They're offering free shipping from Japan. That's a big savings.

Their site only shows this in a long neck and the Google translation is awful. Might be spruce, might be koa. Do you really think a soprano has a truss rod? I don't. But that's a nice case.

There's also an FS-1 on there with a "natural top"
