  • Fay Model one Adirondack and black and white ebony.

    Guitars don’t get any better than this. With impeccable workmanship and detailing it has great presence and playability, with amazing balance from the lowest to the highest notes. Fantastic and well defined bass notes, rich and complex mids and clear trebles. A very versatile guitar, it is great for all styles from flatpicking and strumming to fingerstyle, it will handle it all.

  • Laskin 'Bluegrass' fretboard.

    Origins Of BLuegrass-fretboard

  • Mix MAD A5 with Schertler CDyn pickup USED.

    This carbon fiber climate-proof beauty has the rich and rounded mid-range that only the very best f hole mandolins have, plenty of volume and projection and more resonance than most f hole mandolins. The chop is of the musical type rather than hard-edged percussive, just the way I like it.

  • Weber Bitterroot F5 Octave Mandolin: F style, f hole.

    A beautiful F5 style octave mandolin with hand graduated spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. It as a 20" scale length and 1 3/8" nut with a traditional Brekke bridge giving excellent playability. The top is bound, the fretboard is radiussed and bound ebony and it has a solid/cast stainless steel tailpiece, dual action truss rod, Grover tuners, Celtic knot and 'Weber' headstock design and a custom hard case.

    It is tone bar braced so there is none of that floppiness common to flat top octave mandolins. It has great power and definition with plenty of character and depth of tone and excellent projection. With a 20" scale it is very easy to play.
