Beautiful looking guitar, and if the person who made it thinks the extra hard strings are fine, that's probably ok. Bigger deal to make sure you keep it climate controlled as much as possible so the glue stays happy. I only learned very very recently that the cavaquinho is the Portuguese original instrument that gave birth to the ukelele. Guess it was easier than lugging a classical guitar (or a Portuguese guitar) around the world on one of those ships.
