Mandolin for sale

Classical Flattop Mandolin #277  $1950 (includes case)

This mandolin is a lovely sounding classical flattop with Red Spruce top and Queensland Walnut back and sides.  Queensland Walnut is a beautiful native Australian wood that is now virtually impossible to get, but it is an excellent tonewood,  This wood comes from a stash over 50 years old.

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 very even sounding and sweet.

Woods are - Red Spruce top, Queensland Walnut back, sides and neck, Myrtle bindings, Macassar 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.  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.
