It does! I’m so pleased with it. (I named her Okimi :) )
It’s really hard to avoid making scratches on the wood when taking the bridges on and off though…but if you leave them on, they gradually crack and the strings loosen, and I’d rather superficial damage than that.
I think it’s inevitable, since I’ve noticed all my teacher’s koto have dents and scratches too :(
