Superb sounding Bowlback Mandolin in good playing order & condition. new strings


Up for sale I have a superb sounding Bowlback Mandolin. No label, but at a guess, I would say it is Chinese. Beautifully made, the top is fine grained Spruce, the back is Flamed Maple with 24 segments, which is a good sign of quality, and the fretboard is Ebony. I have fitted a set of new machine heads which are chrome with pearlised buttons, and a new set of light gauge strings with a nice low action.

The overall condition is very good, no serious marks or scratches, and no splits or cracks, all good and solid. This Mandolin is quite a bit larger than the normal Italian Bowlbacks, the dimensions are:

Length: 64 cm

Body: 32 cm

Width: 30 cm

Height: 16 cm

Nut: 27 mm

Height of strings at the 12 th fret: 2mm.

No case with this one, but will be well packed and insured when posted.

Thank you for looking
