New Standard Mandolin #196  $3800 (includes case)

This mandolin is the first mandolin where I have used Redwood.  It has an old growth Redwood top given to me by Jim French when we were in the USA in 1999.  Has taken me a long time to get around to using it, but I should have used it years ago!  I love the colours of the woods and the sound impressed me so much I immediately ordered some more Redwood tops.  This is a really fine sounding mandolin, I like it a lot.  It reminds me of my Goldfinch mandolins.   It has a similar clarity and sweetness in the treble, but the overall sound is more solid.  Oval hole mandolins don't come any better than this one.

Woods are - Redwood top, Tasmanian Blackwood back, sides and neck, Indian Rosewood bindings, Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), Tasmanian Tiger Myrtle pickguard, Schaller tuners with Lancewood tuning knobs and adjustable ebony Brekke bridge.  Comes with a custom made Presto case.

Sound clip coming soon (eventually).
