    Wow! This is another beauty from Max and Lauri. It has a very strong tone with an amazing full and loud chop for the bluegrassers and much, much more. The bass notes are very full and well defined, the mids complex and full of character and the trebles clear and 'fat'. Great for just about any mandolin style.

    With Travellite case.

    A fantastic octave mandolin from Max and Lauri in spruce and gorgeous maple that has both flame and quilt! it comes with a TKL hard case.

    It is very light and responsive with a beautiful deep and sonorous tone with great clarity and definition, great for quiet and sensitive times and with volume and pop for playing with others. With a 20" scale it is a cinch to play while missing none of the stronger bass or extra volume of a longer scaled octave mandolin.

    Another fantastic mandolin from Max and Lauri and another tone monster. Its loud with a great chop but responds fantastically to all playing styles with strong and well defined bass notes, rich and complex mids and clear ringing trebles. Great for bluegrass or just about anything else. My first two Girouard mandolins sold in no-time so don't hang around if you are thinking about this beauty.

    The red maple on this is stunning, as I was photographing it the surface seemed to ripple as I moved it around.
