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.
