Mandolin for sale

Pancake mandolin #227  $1300 (includes case)


This mandolin is based on the Gibson Army Navy mandolins that were made by Gibson from 1918 to 1922, but rather than a brown colouring it has the natural wood colours and the top is bound.  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.  This mandolin is about as far away from a bluegrass mandolin you can get. It seems to ring and sustain forever.  One of the most responsive mandolins I have made, with the typical King Billy sound of sweet and clear.

Woods are King Billy Pine top, Tasmanian Blackwoood back, sides, and neck.  Rubner tuners and cloud tailpiece.  Comes with a case.

Note - These mandolins are build light so strictly light strings only.
