The back is made of 2 pieces of spectacular tiger maple with beautiful irregular wide flames and isin excellent condition and has no repairs and no cracks that I could see.
The ribs are made of matching maple. The upper left rib has some fresh cracks and some damage and deformation at the chinrest area that has happened ( in my opinion) because of some worm damage and need attention.
