Mandolin for sale

Classical Flattop Mandolin #266  $1950 (includes case) 

This mandolin has Indian Rosewood back and sides.  The sound is bright, sweet and very clear.  Clarity of mids and treble is exeptional.

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, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, Ivorywood bindings, Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), 13 & 3/4 inch scale length, Rubner polished 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.
