I've introduced these lovely instruments to my line after some guitar material supply issues. It's been a very rewarding step to take, both is construction and finished instruments! This definitely has a Celtic style mandolin sound. Longer sustain, sweet shimmery tone, plucky when needed but beautifully singing. Laminated back with flamed maple. 11.25" wide body. Gentle rounded V neck profile with body joint at 15 fret for very comfortable higher access. 

Fretboard has a slight, 40" radius.

Appointments of shop-made natural wood purfling, brass fret markers and a hammered copper tailpiece, made here in the shop. This tailpiece works most naturally with ball end strings but there are a few ways to use your favorite loop ends. Smooth turning Gotoh tuners. Finished with a beautiful French-polish throughout, hand rubbed down to a satin sheen.

Please feel free to contact me and we'll arrange for you to try to out this mandolin.
