ROAD DOG F14-F SPECIAL EDITION
It’s called the Road Dog because it’s ready to go! New for 2020, the Road Dog looks, at first glance, like a hot rod, but there’s even more under the hood than you might expect. With a deeper body chamber, this F style mandolin roars—with robust bass, killer projection and a rounder tone that adds versatility without sacrificing power or chop.
Made to play, the Road Dog features a scooped ebony fretboard extension and speed neck with gold frets, along with a thin Fern Burst shellac finish that lets every note pop. Tone bar bracing on a 2A red spruce ivoroid-bound top perfects tradition, especially when paired with classic flame maple back and sides. Handmade in Bend, Oregon, with dovetail construction, the Road Dog has all the benefits of Sound Optimization, employs no clear-cut woods and comes in a touring quality custom Ameritage case.
A simplified Weber flowerpot inlay and nickel tuners adorn the headstock.
