Completed in July 2020 this is another “basic” Pomeroy oval hole and was a custom build. Please read the owners comments at the end of this post. It features:

  • x-braced Englemenn spruce top
  • tortoise shell binding top and tone hole
  • Golden Age “Relic” tuners in vintage nickel finish w/ matching tailpiece and Pomeroy “lady logo” cast in silver
  • 1 3/16″ width bone nut
  • figured maple headplate with ebony side stripe
  • Shop made ebony adjustable bridge/saddle
  • Adjustable truss rod and 3 piece laminate neck construction
  • Soft “V” neck profile is unfinished and waxed ( “speed neck”)
  • 10″ Radiused fingerboard with MOP dots and side markers
  • oil varnish finish

“It’s here and it’s spectacular. The neck shape/size is perfect–extremely comfortable and fast and easy to get around on. Thanks for working with me on that. It may be the best neck on any mandolin I have. Tone is wonderful and rich, and the volume is outstanding–what a little monster! Beautiful color and woods. Love the stealth trussrod cover. Just a wonderful instrument in every way. Great setup too. Varnish smell is still strong–need to let it sit out a couple days.”   Don Grieser, owner    Sept.10 2020
