(USED, 2012) We are excited to get to handle this very fine handcrafted mandolin from the workshop of Lawrence Smart of Hailey, Idaho. This is his satin finish SPIRIT VARNISH two-point model made of beautifully figured sugar maple and topped with Engelmann spruce.
The sound is spectacular.
The instrument is very well set up, with very strong tone and buckets of volume. It’s also decked out with the finest accessories: hinged engraved JAMES tailpiece, gold WAVERLY tuners with ebony knobs, bound ebony pick guard,compound radius fretboard, gold strap button, tortoise binding 1 and 1/8″ mother-of-pearl nut – all with very HIGH grade handcrafted fit and finish. And the finishing touch is a super thin satin spirit VARNISH.
It’s an expertly handcrafted world-class instrument, with a full (slightly chunky) neck.
Price includes the very high quality rectangular (zipper and latch) CONCORD case with hygrometer.
This instrument would sell new for $6,500.
Here on consignment. (No trades, please)
