(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 Stiver TWO POINT mandolin. Otherwise known as the Charely Rappaport Signature model, since Charley helped design and personally approves each instrument, signs the special provenance label in each, and plays the first notes on each one. Like some old world Gypsy baptism, it is. We will be getting four of these two-point mandolins per year, and now that the word is out, they are starting to sell as soon (or before) they arrive. So plan ahead! They are difficult and time-consuming to build, and the tone is unique and versatile. List Price: $6,500 This is our fifth two-point with Mr. Stiver’s “Honey-Burst” finish. It is accessorized with engraved James tailpiece and tortoise pick guard, IVOROID bindings with black purfling, gold strap buttons, and gold Gotoh tuners with IVOROID knobs. Price includes TKL brand rectangular case. Note: the profit from the sale of the Stiver dual-point mandolins funds the Pittsburgh Mandolin Society, a 501c.3 not-for-profit Arts organization, to support activities and outreach of the Pittsburgh Mandolin Orchestra, where Charlie Rappaport serves as Director.
