Luthier Built & Handcrafted

Every aspect of this investment grade solid body electric mandolin has been hand crafted inhouse at our rural workshop outside Downham Market in Norfolk, England.  The selection of tonewoods, the neckcarve, fret pressing, levelling and dressing, inlaying, slotting the bone nut, our unique nickel plated TOM bridges, the nitro cellulose spraying, polishing, wiring, our own custom wound pickups and on to the final setup & testing - each instrument is completely individual.  Every build includes a part of me.

  • Authentic Weather Checking

    Because we use nitro cellulose lacquer without a plasicising agent on our vintage inspired models, we can produce 100% authentic ‘cold checking’ that doesn’t just look real, but is real. When exposed to extreme temperatures, the air and moisture content in the wood causes it to expand and contract.  This cracks the extremely thin and brittle layer of finish on the surface, resulting in the very fine ‘checking’ seen on almost all vintage instruments.

    Our lacquer cures extremely quickly which means you get an old looking finish without 50 to 60 years of waiting. It also makes our finishes very hard and brittle, allowing for zero damping of the instrument’s natural resonance.
