Its top is meticulously hard-carved from Sitka Spruce, ensuring dynamic sound and projection that resonate through every strum. The 2-piece Quarter Sawn Figured Red Maple back not only showcases a stunning grain but also fortifies the mandolin against surface checking and warping, guaranteeing durability and longevity. The Red Maple back and sides imbue the sound with warmth and nuance, while the Dark Burst Gloss finish adds a touch of elegance to the entire instrument. With the Gibson Wide Nut specifications and a radiused fingerboard, fretting becomes a breeze, enabling effortless playability. The absence of a pickguard and the inclusion of a short fingerboard extension enhance the playing experience, allowing players to immerse themselves fully in their musical expression.
