In our years of carrying fine acoustic instruments, mandolins have had an equal share with acoustic guitars. From the highest-end Collings or Weber to the amazing value Eastmans and Summits, we've got something for everybody.
What a beauty! This Collings MF GT Mandolin has it all - sound, playability, and a fantastic look. Beautifully built by our friends at Collings, it has a fully carved and highly resonant Adirondack Spruce top, and Maple back and sides. Its rich, natural sound is supported by tone bar bracing and pours from this instrument. Its timbre is rounded and pure, with a bell-like high end.
Flawlessly finished with a satin nitrocellulose lacquer on the back and a gloss top, the details on this mando are superb. A grained ivoroid binding, inlaid Collings logo on an Ebony peghead veneer, and a seemless sunburst finish all show its expert craftsmanship. It has an original Collings one-piece tailpiece, an adjustable Ebony bridge, and nickel tuners with Ivoroid buttons. Comes with a hard case.
This Eastman MD505 CS Mandolin is a beautiful instrument and a fantastic value. This is a fully hand carved A style mando, based on classic models from the '20s. This has a gorgeous burst finish on an aged Spruce top. Beautiful Maple back and sides on this with an Ebony fretboard on the Maple neck. Solid wood, nice hardware including a cast tailpiece and Schaller tuners and Eastman's famous lacquer finish. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned musician looking for a great deal, this MD505 will not disappoint. The tone is wonderful and full and the playability is excellent. You would be hard pressed to find a better deal on a quality mandolin than this 505. This Eastman MD505 CS Mandolin comes with a hybrid style case too.
This vintage 1926 Gibson F2 Mandolin is in Excellent condition and comes with the original case. It's hard to imagine that a cleaner, more original example is out there. The original finish is bright and clean, with very minor weather checking and only a few nicks and dings. All the seams are tight, and all the metal and plastic parts are original and in very nice condition. The tailpiece cover shows very minor corrosion. This F2 has not been polished up for sale, it's just that nice! Excellent neck angle and proper bridge height here too. The original case shows minor wear, and is missing the handle, but the green interior is stunning. This Gibson mandolin plays beautifully and has a bright clear tone. Serial #82951. - Jim B..

We are so excited to have this Clark F5 Mandolin in the store. This mando was handmade in Boise, Idaho by luthier Austin Clark, and the quality of his craftsmanship is easy to see, and even easier to hear. It sounds incredible. The tone is very balanced and is equally at home with individual note fiddle tune playing, or a solid rhythm chop.
Clark has gained a reputation as the builder of very fine mandolins and archtop guitars for good reason. He only uses the most select materials, as is apparent when inspecting and playing this beautiful F5. The back, sides and neck are broad flamed Maple, the top is select Red Spruce, and the fingerboard is Ebony. The varnish finish adds depth and color to the sunburst stain. The satin engraved tailpiece gives a subtle compliment to the excellent fit and finish throughout. Hardshell case included with this Clark F5 Mandolin.
This Gold Tone Mandola is perfect for those wanting a more unique sound. Tuned lower and with a larger body than a mandolin, this instrument is traditionally tuned CGDA like a viola. It has a rich, deep tone, and allows players to experiment with less conventional keys. The lower register is also great for accompanying the vocalist. Here with a solid Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, and a Rosewood fingerboard. This Gold Tone Mandola plays very well.
This vintage 1920s Gibson F4 Mandolin is quite the player. Made sometime in the 20s, we can't pinpoint the exact year because the serial number is too faded to read. But its vintage sound is unmistakeable, with a rich, woody tone and a sweet high end. It has had some work done, including a replacement adjustable bridge, replacement tuners, and a repaired top crack (see photo). Beautiful color, a smooth neck, and pristine headstock inlay. This 1920s Gibson F4 Mandolin comes with its very worn original hard case. $4,500. Consignment item. Sorry, shipping not included.
This vintage 1928 Gibson Style A Mandolin is in Very Good condition, and plays extremely well. All original here, including the PAT # adjustable bridge, tuners which function perfectly, and a gorgeous black top finish. It has a small, tight crack in the back at the lower bout, as well as some minor nicks and playwear, but is in otherwise great shape especially for an instrument of its age. It has a very nice and straight neck, with a fully functional adjustable truss rod. The frets remain at a good height, and its sound is rich with good volume. This 1928 Gibson Style A Mandolin comes with its worn but original soft case. $2,600. Consignment item. Sorry, shipping not included.
This Collings MT GT Mandolin delivers on every level - unparalleled build quality, spectacular tone, incredible appearance, and wonderful playability. The top here is Englemann Spruce, with a gloss top on the classic (and beautifully done) burst finish set off so well with ivoroid binding. The back and sides are Maple, with a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish. A bone nut (1 1/8" width), Ebony radiused fingerboard, nickel tuners, and that great 'haircut' headstock are all here. This Collings MT GT Mandolin is one of the finest we've seen. Hard case included.
