This is a mandola (CGDA tuning) made of curly maple with an Alaskan yellow cedar sound board. Trim is
camatillo rosewood and kingwood. Finish is a semi-gloss water base lacquer, not buffed to a high gloss, creating
a mellow antique look with the bronze-tone hardware. Easy to play with comfortable 420mm scale and low action.
The tone is clear and pure, neither very mellow nor extremely bright, and balanced across all the strings. For
Irish, Bluegrass or classical.
