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.
