Absolute stunning Mandolin, one of the loudest I have ever heard, with a sweet bright top end tone, even volume string to string and underpinned by a raucous mid range punch and bark. Perfect for Bluegrass or powerful folk and country. Sturdily built with a very stable tuning for mandolin. Neck is not one of the narrowest ones. Amplifies well with Headway Dual Limpet Body contact pickups under bridge mounted on thin maple pads, fitted and set up by luthier Robert Van Der Linde near Oxford UK. End Pin Jack socket made in Italy and incredibly reliable. All solid tone woods include the best. Solid Sitka Spruce hand carved top, light hand rubbed finish. Solid High Flame Maple back & sides. Hand cut natural bone top, recut by Robert in UK. Ebony f/b is smooth. Adjustable Lloyd Loar type bridge with plenty of adjustment left. Good quality integrated Machine Heads by Gotoh. Solid brass, nickel plated tail piece, one of the best. The setup included fret skimming and dressing. Elixir 11’s (medium) fitted. Tortoise shell (mock) inlays, Mother of Pearl design and yellow hand rubbed finish are stunning. The instrument makes an impact when entering a room. This is the pick of the samples I have had from across Asia, easily the best and from a specialist mandolin workshop. Yes, they do exist and I will be getting more of these.
