2017 Brier Road Archtop Octave Mandolin, European Spruce, Figured Maple - USED


(USED) This is one of the most distinctive instruments in our shop!  This beautiful octave mandolin was built by Nicholas Lenski of Brier Road Instruments, in his Adams, Massachusetts workshop.  It has a tight-grained, carved European spruce top and highly figured maple back and sides.  The styling is a mix of naturalistic and modern aesthetics, with leaf-shaped sound holes, a large sound port on the bass side, a cantilevered fingerboard and no plastic parts in sight!

The scale length is approximately 23 5/8" with a 1 3/8" nut and a tall floating ebony bridge.  The guitar also features a carved ebony tail piece and pick guard.  Maple binding with top and side purfling, ebony fingerboard with maple binding and ebony position markers.  Slotted peghead with engraved tuners and ebony buttons.  Includes original hard case. 

Thanks to Bryce Rabideau for the demo video!
