J. Bovier (new) FM-5 Mandola

Tag No 32-3366 New

#9513, with a gorgeous faux alligator form fitting, plush lined, hard shell case.

The full-blown Florentine body and headstock mandola is, of course, the alto voice of the mandolin family.   It is tuned C G D A from lowest to highest course.   It is so sweet, so full, so fully packed with plectral pulchritude that we don’t see why everybody doesn’t want one.    This extremely high quality, hand-made example has the following features• Solid Carved European Spruce Top • Solid Carved Highly Flamed Maple Back • Solid Highly Flamed Maple Sides • Solid Highly Flamed Maple Neck • Vintage Profile Tone-Bar Bracing • Dot Fretboard Inlays • Exclusive Headstock Decor • 3-ply Binding • Genuine Bone Corners • Tusq or Bone Nut • Vintage Design Tuners • Ebony Fretboard • Ebony Bridge • Ebony End Pin • Nickel Plated Hardware • Adjustable Truss-Rod • an actual, honest-to-goodness Dovetail Neck Joint • Traditional Tailpiece + Engraved JBovier logo • .079″ Frets • D’Addario strings • “Sunburst” or ‘Vintage” Stain Coloration • Nitrocellulose Gloss Finish • The manufacturer’s literature states that the case is made by Ameritage – if it is it doesn’t say it is – but it is a model S-6663 hard shell case and it is magnificent.   If a fine mandola is on your list of “things you need to own during your lifetime, this is a really (really) good one.
