The tuning pegs extend beyond that about 3/4. The front has a very pretty rose decal for decoration. The front and sides show minor wear on the edges but I could find no cracks. The back has a wall hanging device.The back has a couple of very narrow cracks that are very hard to see in the photos (they were not immediately apparent to my eye, either), and they do not affect the "voice" of the instrument. If you want to get full pleasure and voice from this instrument, I would advise replacing all of the strings (you may have trouble finding a "set", but strings are available individually from any good music store).
