Octave Mandolin #243  **SOLD**

Flat top OM

This is the first Octave Mandolin I have made with Sassafras.  Beautiful warm tone and easy to play.  If I can play a tune on this, any one can.  21" scale length and 34mm nut width.  This instrument incorporates some new technology that I have discovered in the flat top mandolins that make them sound a lot better.  It also works in mandolas and sure does work in OMs as well.

Woods are Red Spruce top, Tasmanian Black Heart Sassafras back, sides and neck, Indian Rosewood bindings, Ebony fingerboard and bridge.  Bridge is an adjustable Brekke OM bridge custom made for me by Vern Brekke.  Black nickel Schaller GrandTune tuners.  Comes with a case (modified banjo case). 

Listen to it A B.
