New. Another beautiful mandolin from Helena, Montana builder Tom Sheehy. 1 1/4" width at nut.
Cedar top, locally and sustainably harvested from Idaho near Lolo Pass. Madrona back and sides. Maple neck with carbon fiber rod. Jatoba fingerboard with corian position markers inlaid on bass side. Curly maple peghead overlay with stylized Blues Hardware logo inlaid in corian. Curly maple binding showing on back, sides, and top. Special end bumper binding on the points is carefully crafted to resist dings from either direction. Madrona pickguard, suspended from end of fingerboard by Mr. Sheehy's unique carbon fiber design. Hard lilac wood bridge with beautiful hues of lilac color. Schaller tuners. Innovative Blues Hardware tailpiece makes restringing easy as the strings have pins to catch on. It is also powder coated for durability, with corian layer on top.
The oval hole tone nicely complements the lyrical character of this mandolin. Carefully hand-crafted, it is built to last. Readily playable with a variety of styles of music.
