Mandolin for sale

Classical Flattop Mandolin #257  $1900 (includes case)

Stunning looking and exceptional sound for a flattop mandolin.

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 much cleaner.  A true high end refined tone usually only associated with arch top mandolins, not flattops.  This one is loud with a strong ring and sustain and excellent clarity in the mids and treble.

Woods are - Red Spruce top, Tasmanian Black Heart Sassafras back, sides and neck, Indian Rosewood bindings, Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), 13 & 3/4 inch scale length, Rubner gloss brass 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 and wildlife paperwork nor any Lacey act paperwork.
