If you are lucky I may have a mandolin for sale available immediately.
These mandolins are based on a Gibson Army Navy mandolin I restored. They are very simple mandolins that have the typical Coombe sound. Much louder, sweeter, clearer and cleaner sounding than the original I restored. I have come across a few of these over the years, and have not been impressed with the sound, but these do impress. The sound is on another level. Listen to the sound clips, I am not kidding. I really like them, they are fun to make, and I intend to make many more because with that lovely sound they are incredible value for money.
The Pancake is available unbound and stained a dark brown like the originals, but are also available in the natural wood colours with the top bound for an additional $100.
Note that these instruments are made to a price. Thus any changes that involve additional material costs or labour will incur an additional charge. Email me for more information.
