    Gilchrist (used, 2014) Model 5 Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4217 Used Hear this instrument in our demonstration video!
    #71014, Cremona sunburst, in “near mint condition” with an off white exterior Calton hard shell case.

    The sound of this mandolin is ethereal, producing a sound that makes other mandolins blanch with emotional distress and slink out of the room. And speaking of Blanche, a customer who once owned a Gilchrist Model 5 mandolin once told us that it’s okay to name your Gilchrist with a fancy lady’s name since “she can be subtle, gentle and sophisticated, yet able to devour a herringbone dreadnought and spit out the bones!” 

    Our Price is $21,999.00.

    Gibson (used, 1987) F-5L "The Fern" Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4216 Used Hear this instrument in our demonstration video!
    #7013098, in “very good plus” condition with the original rectangular hard shell case. The interior label is signed by Steve Carlson on September 8th, 1987.

    The Gibson F-5L is essentially the top of the standard (lacquer finish) line, not including their Artist models.  This is what Gibson itself has to say about it:   “The F-5L, introduced in 1978, marked the beginning of a return to the specifications of Lloyd Loar's original F-5 Master Model mandolins of 1922-24. Today's F-5 sets the standard by which all other mandolins are judged.” Not too modest or anything, and certainly not wordy.   It is most definitely beautiful and elegant.

    Weber (used, 2014) Bitterroot F-Style Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4210 Used
    #13462210, with added Weber armrest, sunburst with grained ivoroid top binding, carved Sitka spruce top and nicely figured maple back and sides, with gray Weber-logo hard shell case.

    Every now and then an instrument arrives that is so off-the-charts in terms of physical beauty and superlative response that the first time we try it (with a flatpick secured in a prehensile manner) we look at one another say,  just like Mike LaFontaine did in A Mighty Wind “Wha’ Happen?”

    Our Price is $2,399.00.

  4. Breedlove (new) Premier OF Vintage Burst Mandolin

    Breedlove (new) Premier OF Vintage Burst Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4204 New
    #17108, with hard shell case.

    The simple teardrop shape of the Premier OF Mandolin offers musicians much more than expected: substantial projection, and a boomy, deep range that speaks with clarity and authority. Composed of a Sitka spruce top and Western maple back and sides, the OF has tone bar bracing which further complements the bold projection. Breedlove mandolins are said to be easy to play with a radiused fingerboard and oversize frets that allow for extreme comfort. The finish on this OF is a sumptuous semi-gloss vintage sunburst, both beautiful to the eyes and pleasing to the hand.

    Our Price is $1,299.00.

  5. Phoenix (new) Neoclassical Europa III Mandolin

    Phoenix (new) Neoclassical Europa III Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4205 New
    #623, Made for classical, folk, Celtic and other nice-sounding music (no Bluegrass allowed) with the finest tone and playability possible in a light-string mandolin. Hard shell case included.

    The same design as the legendary Neoclassical but with pedigreed European tone woods, a bass-side sound port for the player who cannot sit in front of the mandolin while playing, fingerboard position dots under the bass strings just visible to the naked eye, and a warm brown finish reminding one of Cadbury chocolate.  The appearance and sound are elegant enough to suggest formal attire.  Lobster-fueled luthier Rolfe Gerhardt will craft only ten of these treasures which have the same woods and construction as one in the collection of the National Music Museum.  This is the final series of the Europas.

    Our Price is $3,900.00.

  6. Phoenix (new) Neoclassical Mandolin

    Phoenix (new) Neoclassical Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4199 New
    #621, Made primarily for classical playing with a sound as sweet as a varietal honey produced from the flowers of the tupelo tree found in the Southeastern United States & with hard shell case.

    Designed with the classical player in mind, this extremely high quality, superb sounding two-point model comes from the builder with Thomastic strings. Rolfe Gerhart, the builder, says: The Neoclassical is the only American mandolin specifically designed for full sound with extra-light strings (up to Dr. Thomastik mediums) for mandolin orchestras, and also for easy playing of folk, jazz, Celtic, and modern classical music. Professionals are startled by its loudness and light weight, saying, "I can’t believe the volume with extra-light strings!"

    Our Price is $3,340.00.

    Tag No 32-4185 New
    #14104244, in transparent Amber finish, with a gig bag.

    Before 1922, most popular mandolins had Oval-shaped sound holes; offering a distinctive sound that played a significant role in shaping the sound of popular music of the day. The diminutive size, unique voice, and relative affordability made it perfect for a wide range of musical styles. To this day, vintage examples of these popular A-style instruments are still played by discerning musicians and coveted by collectors around the world. Now, anyone can afford to own this legendary mandolin design in a Kentucky KM-272 A-style mandolin with the oval sound hole!

    Trinity College (new) TM-250 Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4188 New
    #1405080205, with hard shell case.

    This type of mandolin has traditionally been used for Celtic, Blues, Old-Timey, Brazilian music, and various other styles. The goal of the designers at Trinity College was to create the highest quality instrument of its type--an instrument suitable for any professional artist--but priced considerably lower than the prices that the current boutique makers ask for their instruments of similar quality. The finest solid tonewoods are selected for the TM-250. Choice spruce and select maple make up the body and the neck is solid mahogany--reinforced by an adjustable truss rod that keeps the neck in perfect alignment.

    Our Price is $715.00.
