Peter Coombe Mandolins and Guitars
Mandolin for sale
Pancake mandolin #226 $1200 (includes case)
This mandolin is based on and looks just like a Gibson Army Navy mandolin that were made by Gibson from 1918 to 1922. It does have a few modern improvements such as carbon fibre in the neck and an adjustable Brekke bridge as well as a bit more bracing. The extra bracing must be in the right spot because it sounds much better than any of the original Gibsons I have seen. Lovely sweet clean sound.
Woods are Red Spruce top, Tasmanian Golden Sassafras back and sides, and Queensland Maple neck. Golden age tuners and cloud tailpiece. Comes with a case.
Note - These mandolins are build light so strictly light strings only.
