Mandolin for sale
Classical Flattop Mandolin #247 $1900 (includes case)
Beautiful clean and sweet sounding mandolin
made from Australian native woods.
This mandolin belongs to my second generation of flattop mandolins. It incorporates a construction technique I discovered a while ago that incorporates some technology used in flattop guitars. It makes the flattop mandolins sound a lot better. It has the typical mellow clear sweet mids and treble sound of King Billy Pine, similar to my Goldfinch mandolins. A true high end refined tone usually only associated with arch top mandolins, not flattops.
Woods are - King Billy Pine top, Tasmanian
Blackwood back, sides and neck, Tasmanian Myrtle bindings, Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm
wide at the nut), 13 & 3/4 inch scale length, Schaller Grand Tune tuners with Ebony knobs
and ebony adjustable Brekke flattop bridge. Price
includes a case.
For my American customers, note that this mandolin does not have any shell inlay. The fingerboard marker dots are white opal, and the headstock logo is European Maple wood. There is no need for a USA import permit nor any Lacey act paperwork.
