    Oval or f hole for a mandocello? It would seem logical that a cello would be better with oval holes given that bass and resonance is the point of a cello. I was surprised when I visited Bill Bussmann to hear the incredible bass from his jazz guitar bodied, f hole, octave mandolin, so surprised that I insisted he sell it to me! Not being a jazz fan I have never understood the sound of a jazz guitar, I just don't get it or particularly like it. It's the last thing I would have thought would produce a bassy and resonant larger mandolin family instrument, but is does! ... end of long story.... This Eastman cello proves the theory that somehow a jazz guitar body produces a deep and resonant sound. It has incredible warm and dark basses with rich and thick resonance, it plays easily and is a very fine mandocello. Comes with hardshell case.

    1920 Gibson O Style Artist in amazing condition, all original including case (a bit tatty with the cloth covering removed). The Style O was made famous by Big Bill Broonzy.

    I had been wanting to get my hands on one fo these for a very long time, and then I find two in a few months! It plays beautifully with a rich and full tone, more of a flat-top than archtop sound. All in perfect working order with good action and no buzzes or rattles.

    When I last visited Bill and played his melon I told him I just had to have one. He said he felt that with the last one (his) he had achieved what he wanted form the idea and didn't want to make anymore. Mean son of a ******.

    Anyways, to cut a long story very short a while later I heard those immortal words 'I owe you a favour' this is that favour. I've had it a while now and despite the regular thinning of my herd its staying.

    Gorgeous flamed maple, back sides and neck make this OO1 from Bill Collings look as stunning as it sounds. It has all the versatility, depth of tone and clarity of the mahogany OM with a little added sparkle.

    It has a very balanced sound with full basses, rich and complex mids and clear, ringing trebles. The chop is what I refer to as 'musical' plenty of power and cut but with warmth and richness. Great for bluegrass and almost any other style of playing.

    This beauty has a very even sound from the lowest G all the way up the fretboard, not biased towards the bass notes like so many oval holed mandolins. The tone is very full and sweet with great individual note definition, fantastic for folk/old time and many more styles.

    Northfield Big Mon F5 - Engelmann Spruce Top

    £4,795.00
     
    In stock
    Big Mon with Engelmann Spruce top, violin varnish neck, engraved Bill James tailpiece.

    The Northfield Big Mon has been creating quite a stir. It has a big fat tone with fantastic volume and projection. Created as the ideal bluegrass hoss (or cannon if you prefer) it has an amazing chop and great depth and richness of tone to take on pretty well any style, with great responsiveness from the lightest touch to the heaviest attack with a thick pick it is fantastic for all types of playing.

    From the Northfield website. "Our "Big Mon" Mandolin is something we created in our shop. In an effort to try and create a little more mid range and bass response, with a nice airy sound, we developed this model to have a distinct voice. Here's what we did..

    The "Big Mon" body style is just slightly different than the standard size. We've increased the width of the body, at its widest point, by 5mm. We've also adjusted the depth/width of the sides a little in a few places. Everything is in proportion to this change, so it results in a slightly larger body overall. It's not very noticeable unless you compare it directly to another standard size by lining them up back to back."

    1904 Washburn parlour in excellent condition. Adirondack/Brazilian rosewood, wooden coffin style case.

    The depth and richness of tone of this little beauty is truly remarkable! It's a little clichéd to say how parlour guitars sound like bigger guitars but if you doubt it, come and try this stunner. It has a quality of tone that only a hundred and ten years of Adirondack and Brazilian can produce.

    I have no expertise in this area but will do my best to answer any questions. As far as I can tell it is all original except for the bridge pins.

    Here’s a special offer on a special guitar that has, what some might say, are ‘issues’. We’ve had the guitar in the shop for a while now. During that time it has done its own ‘relic job’ by developing lacquer checking across the whole surface of the Spruce top. The back, sides and neck are unaffected.

    Anyone who knows a bit about the ‘lacquer checking’ that is added to modern custom shop electric guitars will understand what I mean by a ‘relic job’. There is absolutely no adverse effect to the tone or the overall loveliness of the guitar, it sounds wonderful, it’s just not something that you usually find on an expensive handmade acoustic guitar. There's an image of the lacquer checking below.

    The fret ends on the lower side of the neck could do with a little tidying up too though playability is very good as it is.

    There’s not much room left in the saddle for those who like an ultra-low action though the current action is great for fingerstyle.

    We don’t currently have the services of a luthier so we are therefore offering this guitar at £2,995, a massive £4,000 discount! Yes, you can own a seven grand guitar that you might not have been able to afford.

    Feel free to make us a cheeky offer as long as you don’t mind a cheeky response.

    I'm speechless.. well almost. I've heard and seen a lot of great guitars here at TAMCO, and on my travels over the last ten years or so, and this is one of the most beautiful ever.

    I think a lot of players have an ideal sound in their heads for different styles of guitar. This matches my idea of how a Jumbo should sound....perfectly.

    It is big and loud with fantastic balance and focus, the depth and richness of tone is stunning. Nothing washes about causing unwanted harmonics and overtones, it's just great!

    There has been a lot of excitement about wenge recently. In these times of traditional tone woods becoming scarce and in some cases tightly restricted and banned, it's great to work with a wood that is plentiful and cheap.

    Some find the look of it to be plain but others love the deep and rich variations of colour that can be seen when looking closely, to be very beautiful. The way Kent has combined it with Leopardwood accents makes it an incredibly beautiful guitar however you look at it.

    Kent says this is the best guitar he has made and by his standards something.. by my standards it has a wonderful full sound, with complex and resonant tones across its very well balanced and defined range.

    There has been a lot of discussion recently about the merits of maple and the widely held misconception that it gives bright tone.

    This beauty from Jimmy proves what a wild misconception it is. I just asked my tech to play it, the first thing he said is that the bass is very strong (I agree), the trebles are very clear and the mids are warm and complex. He is also very impressed by the balance from the lowest note to the highest.

    Its hard to know what to say sometimes when such amazing guitars arrive. I am shocked that Sheldon's work isn't more widely known.

    This is an original and wonderful work of art. I'm am fond of commenting on how great luthiers can combine qualities that otherwise might be considered mutually exclusive. Well Sheldon has pulled it off in achieving the big sound that you might expect from a sitka/rosewood sixteen inch guitar of this quality with remarkable individual note clarity and balance.

    Players in smaller rooms won't need amplification, neither will those who play with a soft touch - finger tips not nails for instance - lack any response or tonal character. Its big and beautiful and soft and mellow, a guitar that will respond to all moods and playing styles. Brilliant!

    This 12/15 - twelve frets to the body and a 15 inch lower bout - is another fantastic guitar from Steve. The body join at the twelfth fret gives a very full and rich tone due to the changed position of the bridge and the cutaway gives access all the way up.

    The result is a warm tone with great balance and the superb definition of Adirondack, deep/well defined bass, complex mids and clear, ringing trebles.

    Another absolute stunner from Marc. The first thing that strikes me playing this beauty is the remarkable balance and individual note clarity, from the lowest to the highest note it has incredible definition and projection. Add the warmth and responsiveness of mahogany and you get a very versatile guitar.

    The playability is superb and it responds beautifully to everything from a pick to the lightest fingerstyle.

    There is an Acoustic Magazine review of this guitar here.

    With the 'Manzer Wedge' this feels like an OO sized guitar to play, supremely comfortable and effortless.

    The balance and clarity is the best I've heard, with perfect individual note definition from bottom to top. There is a depth and richness to the tone that defies belief with incredible articulation. There are good reasons why luthiers like Linda have the reputations that they do; this is one of them.

    My first two guitars from Steve sold quickly and I like this one even more. Walnut is a wood that is not popular in some quarters but I've liked every Walnut guitar I've had built.

    It has a very full and luscious tone with warm and rounded basses with great definition. The mids are rich and complex and the trebles fat but clear all the way up. The overall balance is fantastic with great projection and volume. It has plenty of headroom for those with a heavy pick style and the sweetest clear and resonant tone from a light touch with fingers with or without nails.

    Stunning in all departments.

    A very rare opportunity to get a used big Mon in excellent condition. Save £1000 on the new price.

    The Northfield Big Mon has been creating quite a stir. It has a big fat tone with fantastic volume and projection. Created as the ideal bluegrass hoss (or cannon if you prefer) it has great depth and richness of tone to take on pretty well any style, with great responsiveness from the lightest touch to the heaviest attack with a thick pick.

    From the Northfield website. "Our "Big Mon" Mandolin is something we created in our shop. In an effort to try and create a little more mid range and bass response, with a nice airy sound, we developed this model to have a distinct voice. Here's what we did..

    The "Big Mon" body style is just slightly different than the standard size. We've increased the width of the body, at its widest point, by 5mm. We've also adjusted the depth/width of the sides a little in a few places. Everything is in proportion to this change, so it results in a slightly larger body overall. It's not very noticeable unless you compare it directly to another standard size by lining them up back to back."
