Completed in April 2020, this oval hole mandolin features black walnut back, sides and neck. Its the 2nd one that I’ve made in walnut, but thanks to a very lucky find, I’ll be making many more. It is a softer wood than maple and lends a slightly softer, sweeter tone to the overall tonal profile, as well as having visual features that are unique and unmatched in a typical mandolin, I think you’ll agree. It also features the following:

  • “V” style construction, plates overhanging the sides with inlaid violin perfling top and back
  • Artist grade Englemenn spruce top, X braced
  • Golden Age “Relic” tuners in vintage in brass finish w/ matching tailpiece
  • 1 3/16″ width ebony nut
  • Shop made ebony adjustable bridge/saddle
  • Adjustable truss rod and 3 piece laminate neck construction
  • Soft “V” neck profile
  • 10″ Radiused fingerboard with MOP dots and side markers
  • oil varnish finish
  • Hardshell case included
  • Full lifetime warranty
