Completed in October of 2021, This is a custom build for a customer that has acquired quite a few Pomeroys in the past. #273 is another walnut backed oval hole mandolin in a sequence of many. I couldn’t be happier with how they’re looking and sounding. This one also features:

  • Red Spruce top, X braced
  • American walnut back, sides and neck
  • Relic Golden Age tuners/matching tailpiece
  • 1 3/16″ bone nut
  • bound top, back, fingerboard and headstock in ivoroid
  • traditional rossette
  • 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

 “Hey Don,
Letting you know that #273 is safe and sound in its new home. Nice packing! My word, I do believe it could have survived being tossed from an airplane to my apartment!
The mandolin is absolutely gorgeous! Because of you, I am a huge fan of Walnut. The figure of that wood is stunning and hypnotic.
Playability is spot on and with a great feel. More than anything, the sound out of it knocked me out!
Well done sir! Fabulous craftsmanship!”  Ron Tobias, owner #273
