New Custom model mandolin #216  $3300 (includes case)

This is the second Custom Model mandolin I have made and is the first to appear here.  The first one was sold very soon after  I finished it.  This one has all the characteristics of the Custom model i.e. loud, very responsive, with great clarity, and big ring and sustain.  You can read all about the Custom Model here.  It is warmer sounding than the first, which was made with Maple, but has quite a strong clear treble.  The top is Douglas Fir, which was accidental, but it works very nicely.  The top was in amongst my Red Spruce tops that I bought from Bruce Harvey when we were in the USA in 1999, and I thought it was Red Spruce until I was carving it and noticed it smelled wrong for Red Spruce, but by then it was too late.  No regrets, it sounds great.

Woods are -Douglas Fir top, Tasmanian Myrtle back, sides and neck, Indian Rosewood bindings and pickguard, Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), matt gold Schaller GrandTune tuners with Ebony knobs and ebony adjustable Brekke bridge.  Price includes a case.
