Mandolin for sale

Goldfinch Mandolin #255  $4200 (includes case)

Gorgeous sounding Goldfinch mandolin.  It has the usual Goldfinch sweet and clear sound, but this one is exceptional.  If it is not the best sounding oval hole mandolin I have made so far it is at least in the top 3.  I don't have the others, so can't be sure, but wow, really really nice.  It is made from some high quality King Billy Pine from Tasmania that I shared with Gillian Alcock in 1997 that I call "our tree".

Woods are - King Billy Pine top, Tasmanian Blackwood back, sides and neck, Ivorywood bindings, Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), 13 & 7/8 inch scale length, Schaller Grand Tune tuners with Ebony knobs and ebony adjustable Brekke bridge.  Marker dots, headstock logo and soundhole rosette are Paua Abalone.  Price includes a Hiscox case.

Sound clips coming soon.
