Description
Our new A-style features an oil finish. This finish is much thinner than urethane and allows for the best vibration to maximize tone. We've radiused the ebony fingerboard for easy playability and included a fingerboard scoop. Includes a cast tail piece with easy string removal and high quality machine heads for tuning stability. This A-style will compete, sound and playability-wise, with all others at an incredible price point.

Our new Solid Top GM-55A is the best sounding A style mandolin we've heard for under $1000 (List $599.00). The sound quality is mainly due to a unique oil finish that is very protective yet allows the instrument to vibrate freely compared to a lacquer or polyurethane finish. The oil finish cannot be simply painted on, or applied and left to soak in. This hand rubbed finish must be rubbed into the wood using an abrasive applicator and a fair amount of elbow grease. Essentially, there must be enough heat and friction to break-down the wax content of the finish, so it will penetrate into the pores of the wood.
The antique appearance is unique and quite different then a satin or gloss finish. For those wondering why the appearance is slightly different then the usual, simply play the instrument and you will understand our reasoning with its surprising volume and tone!!!
