Mandolin for sale

Classical Flattop Mandolin #272  $1950 (includes case) **SOLD**

This mandolin has the Goldfinch configuration of woods, King Billy Pine and Blackwood.  Sound is the typical clear, sweet sound of King Billy Pine, and this mandolin is very responsiive and loud.

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, and the best bass sound to date for this model.

Woods are - King Billy Pine top, Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides, Blackwood neck, Indian Rosewood bindings, Macassar Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), 13 & 3/4 inch scale length, Rubner brass tuners with Ebony knobs and ebony adjustable Brekke flattop bridge.  Varnish finish.  Price includes a case.

For my American customers, note that this mandolin does not have any shell inlay.  The fingerboard marker dots are 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.
