New Custom model mandolin #218  $3500 (includes case)  **SOLD**

This is the second arch top mandolin I have made with Black Heart Sassafras and it is the first to appear here.  We are keeping the first one as a reference.  It is a Custom model because I thought Sassafras was a very promising tonewood for this model.  You can read all about the Custom Model here.  I was right, boy was I right.  This is one of, if not the best sounding oval hole mandolin I have made.  An exceptionally fine sounding mandolin.  Loud, open sounding, with exceptional clarity in the mids and treble and it seems to ring and sustain forever. Looks gorgeous too.  You might have guessed, but I really like this one.

Woods are -Red Spruce top, Tasmanian Black Heart Sassafras back, sides and neck, Indian Rosewood bindings, Tasmanian Blackwood pickguard, Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), matt gold Schaller GrandTune tuners with Ebony knobs, matching James tailpiece, and ebony adjustable Brekke bridge.  Price includes a case.
