  • Givens A3 1989.

    Bob (R.L.) Givens made mandolins from 1962 to 1992 and sadly died in 1994. This is serial number 501, finished on the 3rd December 1989. Legendary for their tone and playability and made during a time that a well known mandolin maker was making what a better known mandolin commentator than myself described as 'acoustically challenged' mandolins. Givens mandolins are highly collectable, though those that knew him say he would have preferred them to be played than bought as an investment. You can see an appreciation of Bob Givens at <a href="" TARGET="_blank"></a> For once we have a legend that is not a myth, this is one of the best sounding mandolins I have ever heard. Bob hand-made over 600 mandolins, if he had made less the prices of these gems would be through the roof. It is very loud, a chop chord brings the wall down, but also responds to the lightest touch. Very deep warm bass, rich honey soaked mids and clear cutting trebles, it seems to do what ever you want! This really is a phenomenal mandolin. A few dings and scratches on the top but otherwise excellent condition with fiberglass case..

  • Old and new Sheraton brown.


  • Brentrup A4 Model 20 Adirondack/Red spruce/sugar maple USED.

    Originally sold by me and showing some of Hans' typical crazed varnish (maybe the thin varnish is why they sound so good?).

    Since Han's sadly had to stop making mandolins due poor health this is a rare opportunity to get a Brentrup mandolin at a great price.

    Mandolins don't come much classier than this. All Hans'  mandolins have immaculate and very stylish finishing. The std models have tortoise bindings on a dark sunburst, nothing flash here just simple beautiful lines complimented with a James tailpiece and a sculpted rosewood pickguard. Hans chose sugar maple to compliment the red spruce/Adirondack top to achieve an incredible balance between cut and pop and depth and resonance of tone. Basses are strong, the mid range is  rich and complex and the trebles are clear and bright, this is a fantastically versatile mandolin by one of today's great mandolin builders.

  • Pava A5 Player sunburst gloss.

    Pava's mandolins sell as quickly as I can get them and there is a very good reason, they are incredible, immaculate fit and finish, the best tonewoods available and fantastic tone.

    This absolutely gorgeous Player A5 has great volume with an immense chop and great depth and warmth. It plays beautifully and responds equally well to the gentlest touch or going for it with a heavy pick. Pick your style from bluegrass to classical, this is a mandolin for everyone.

  • Weber Bitterroot A5: A style, f hole.

    Beautiful A5 Bitterroot with flame maple back and sides, spruce top, radiussed ebony fretboard and Brekke bridge, tone bar braced, 1 1/8" nut width,  cast Weber stainless steel tailpiece, nickel Grover tuners, dual action adjustable truss rod and custom hard case. The Bitterroot is our best selling F5 and this gem sounds just as good for quite a lot less, lacking what the Americans call a thousand dollar strap hanger but nothing else, it has huge volume and clarity making it a bluegrass monster, but with depth and subtlety too for other styles, a great sounding and looking mandolin at a great price.
