Gilchrist Model 1 USED SOLDOut of stockIn as new condition and very hard to get hold of these days.
Not many of the world’s top mandolin makers make oval hole mandolins. So when the opportunity to get one by one of the ‘four mandolin gods’ came along I couldn’t resist. Steve proves one of my theories of what the best luthiers can achieve. Tonal characteristics that might normally be considered to be either or can be combined. This beautiful Model 1 mandolin has as much bass as is ever likely to come out of a mandolin, but it still has amazing definition and projection, the mids are very full and complex, the trebles sing a very sweet song, a truly remarkable mandolin.
