(NEW) We love Stiver mandolins, we know they are among the finest in the world, and we get excited whenever we get our hands on one. Imagine our excitement, then, now that we are able, exclusively, to offer the 40th Anniversary Stiver mandolin.
When Mr. Stiver and I discussed the idea for his 40th Anniversary mandolins, we couldn’t think of a lot of changes, since the 400 or so Stiver mandolins out there pretty much speak for themselves, and Stiver-owners tend to be some of the most contented and least likely to want to trade one away…so we kept it simple, but elegant.
Lou honored our request for some very special wood – and he acquired a few sets of MASTER GRADE maple for us, large enough to yield a ONE-PIECE back, which we dearly love. The special woods add $450 to the MSRP. It is accessorized with a special *40th Anniversary* engraved James tailpiece and tortoise pick guard, IVOROID bindings with black purfling, gold strap buttons, ” faux-fretted” fretboard scoop and gold Gotoh tuners with IVOROID knobs. Price includes TKL brand rectangular case.
New (2014) MSRP: $6,950.
