New Rosewood and Spruce Pocket mandolin

This is a newly-built, pocket or back-packers mandolin, built by me.....

It has a 3-piece rosewood, back and sides and spruce top. The fingerboard is ebony and it has modern alloy frets. It is finished in Tru-oil varnish. It has been strung with ultra-light GHS bronze wound classical strings, and is now playing well with an easy action, with a light, bright sound.

A scratch plate and/or strap buttons can be added at a small extra cost if required... :)
