 Armstrong (Kay) Octave Mandolin 1
View Detail
1935 Armstrong (Kay) Octave Mandolin Conversion from 6-string Archtop Guitar Mandolin 'Sold'

     Excellent conversion from Archtop Guitar to Octave Mandolin. Made in 1935, possibly by Kay, for Armstrong brand. Solid wood construction, with Mahogany Back, sides and neck, and a Spruce top.
     Elaborate marquetry purflings around top edge. Peghead does show 2 of the original plugged 6-string holes, but not glaringly obvious at a glance. Neck was professionally shaved down a bit for the 8-str Octave Mandolin string configuration. Original pickguard is really cool multi-laminate plastic. The conversion work was done here in Missoula by George Weisel, and I have to say it is a great job!
    These octave mandolins that have archtop bodies are preferred by many players for having more presence, as well as facilitating ease of  playing due to positioning of left and right hands. Price reduced...

The effect that the white layer of binding has on the tortoise is quite nice - it "backlights" the tortoise strip so that it comes alive with the reds and ambers that are more muted without the white line beneath. Ecxcellent playability and tone.

New Collings MT Custom Black Top Mandolin 'Sold'

Beautiful mandolin. Custom black top, with gloss lacquer, satin finish back sides & neck. Maple back and sides, spruce top. Tortoise top bindings w/ white purfling. The extra white line in the binding is definitely worth the cost - on a black top mandolin single tortoise binding fades into the background, while this multiple binding with white behind the tortoise really shows off the color and depth of the Tortoise! Nice looking mandolin. *Photos are of previous instrument. Listen to these sound samples...

2006 Ellis F-5 Varnish - One-pc Back Mandolin 'Sold'

     Exceptional condition, workmanship and tone. We have been fortunate to have had a handful of Tom Ellis' mandolins over the last few years. ALL of them were great mandolins.
     This mandolin is certainly among Tom's best. Beautiful in every way to the point that I keep wanting to use the word, "exquisite", over and over to describe it.
     Red Spruce top, with highly figured one-piece Maple back, sides and neck. I think it is Red Maple, but not absolutely sure. Radiused Ebony fingerboard with traditional double-cut extension. Dot inlays in fingerboard. Peghead has perfect floral "fern-like" inlay under the Ellis script logo.
     Ivoroid multiple bindings on body and peghead, with ivoroid binding along fingerboard. Gold Waverly tuners with solid pearl buttons. Gold engraved James tailpiece. Solid pearl nut. Small Ebony pickguard.
     This mandolin looks better the closer you look at it... The carve lines are lovely the way the light reveals the perfection of the recurve and other areas. The color and the finish are also top-notch, with both working well to complete the "look".
     Frets show some marks from previous owner, but are not really "worn" - certainly no fret work needs to be done.
     The sound has all the elements - the sculpted attack, like a bubble popping softly yet cleanly, the tonal depth, the great highs, great chop, etc. I could go on and on, but in short, it is a wonderful sound.

c.2007 Giacomel J-5 Varnish Finish Mandolin 'Sold'

     Exc(+) condition. Only a few slight fingernail or pick marks here and there, and slight signs in the varnish finish where a tone guard had been attached.
     Finely appointed, with most woods used being native to Mr Giacomel's home, Italy. Wooden bindings, figured Maple, Italian White Spruce. Giacomel employs no machine tools in the making of these instruments (less than 10 made per year), yet the precise cuts and fitting are much more perfect being made by hand than if they were a few degrees "more perfect" by machine.
     This is a very beautiful piece of art that also sings with its own pure strength. Not simply relegated to a 'jazz' mandolin because of its stylings - it has great attack, gutteral depth, and power that any "great" instrument should have.
     The varnish finish is very nice, with an excellent lustre and a beautiful and telling thin application.
     These sell for $12,500 as new instruments. Take advantage of this one in great original condition, for quite a savings...

Original tailpiece that may have been ordered with customer's initials. Original finish. Appears to be the original bridge. Original frets! It is possible the nut is also original.

     On the top, there are two slight checks in the wood that are not broken through. One is from inside middle of scroll, down toward the soundhole rosette - it is not separated, and does not flex. The other is a very slight check from the lower triangular body point, upward about an inch.
     This mandolin is in great original condition and has been well cared for. It does not need any attention. Just buy it and enjoy it. The sound is very good.

1994 Gibson F-5 Bill Monroe Varnish Mandolin 'Sold'

     Excellent condition. #124 of 200. Label signed by Bill Monroe. This mandolin reminds me of how clean and precise the craftsmanship was when Gibsons were made in Bozeman, Montana. Made using select old Maple purchased by Steve Carlson years earlier.
     Made under the watchful eye of Bruce Weber, these mandolins were slowly made over a 2 to 2 1/2 year period. There are a handful of the 200 that were made with lacquer finish, but the lion's share were made with spirit varnish, like this one.
     Faithful to Bill Monroe's 1923 Gibson Lloyd Loar, the binding shows black line along sides of mandolin, instead of on top and back. Flowerpot inlay in peghead, along with The Gibson script logo, and solid pearl truss-rod cover with Bill Monroe engraved in it.
     Highly figured aged Maple back, sides and neck, with select Spruce top. The traditional tobacco sunburst is perfect, and with the varnish really has a great look to it.
     The tone is strong and well developed over time, even though there is no obvious player wear.
     Please call us for more details.

1994 Gibson F-5 Bill Monroe Varnish Mandolin 'Sold'

     Exc(+) condition. #124 of 200 made. One-owner mandolin. The only sign of prior ownership are few very small chips in the finish at top peak of back of peghead. No fret wear, no scratches.
     I remember standing with Bruce Weber and Ren Ferguson in the old Gibson/Flatiron shop in Bozeman, MT, in about 1985 or 1986, and being shown a huge batch of high-grade old Maple that they had purchased. When I asked if we could order mandolins made with this old cured tonewood, Ren Ferguson told me that they had bought it.for a large "special" run of mandolins that they would build in the future. In 1992 Gibson announced that they would build 200 F-5's built like Bill Monroe's original Gibson F-5 Loar. This old wood was used in their construction.
     Highly figured old cured Maple back, sides and neck. Highly select Spruce top with excellent medullary rays. Sunburst. Ebony paghead overlay, fingerboard and bridge. Pearl dot inlays in fingerboard. Abalone and Pearl traditional flowerpot inlay in peghead. The Gibson pearl inlay in peghead. Multiple bindings, with black line seen at sides of body and fingerboard, like Bill Monroe's Loar. Silver plated Schaller tuners with solid pearl buttons. Silver plated 2-pc tailpiece with The Gibson engraved in cover. Silver plated bridge adjusters. Varnish finish. Solid pearl truss-rod cover with Bill Monroe signature engraved. Flat fingerboard with traditional double-cut extension.
     This mandolin plays real "easy". The neck profile is nice and slim. The attack is fast and sure, and the tone is the good 'ol wooden bell Gibson sound. It is a fine mandolin, for sure.
     The case that comes with this instrument is the original hard case, with metal placque denoting special run of Bill Monroe signature F-5, and showing #124 of 200. Not only that, but this case is quite valuable on the used market, as it closely resembles the old original "Loar" cases.

     Excellent original condition. No dings, dents, or scratches. Played very little by previous owner. Beautiful African blackwood.
     Patrick Olwell has made a reputation for himself as one of the world's premier makers of fine Celtic flutes. People wait a year for a keyless flute order and up to seven years for a keyed flute. His waitlist is extensive as he only makes approximately 60 flutes per year in his shop in Virginia. Having made flutes since the 1970s, Mr. Olwell has many celebrity players endorsing his instruments, including Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. His experience with restoring antique flutes inspired his refinement of the instrument.

     For some time in the 1970's, Michael Kimnetzer (Nugget Mandolins), worked at the OME shop in Boulder, Colorado. Perhaps partly because he already had a background in making good mandolins, OME made a decision to produce some mandolins. Michael Kimnetzer did work on designing these mandolins and also built jigs and tooling for the project. Furthermore, Michael tells me he handbuilt 5 prototypes at their shop. The original 5 OME mandolin prototypes made by Michael Kimnetzer are ALL accounted for, with 3 still in the hands of the original owners. This nice example we are selling here was NOT built by Mr Kimnetzer, but was built at OME on Mr Kimnetzer's tooling...
     There is no serial number, no information under the top, etc, that we can find.
     Nice tone with a dark and very woody sound. Just came back from the shop with nice new fret job and new nut.

Nickel Schaller tuners. Nickel Prucha 2-pc tailpiece. Ebony adjustable 'Loar style' 2-piece bridge. Strap button professionally installed in side of neck heel.

A new mandolin like this one sells now for between $3600 and $3850, depending on options, so this one has all the sound, is in very good playing condition, and sounds like a champ, for hundreds less than a new one than a new one.

It is made from good Maple back, sides and neck, with Englemann Spruce cut by Bob Givens, himself.  Ebony radiused fingerboard with dot inlays and original frets in good shape. Original handmade Givens Ebony bridge, and also the original tailpiece and Schaller tuners. The color is "Sheraton Brown". The top has several small nicks and dings in finish - probably from shipping at some point with a loosened tailpiece cover touching the top of mandolin in transit. The top shows some slight settling, but has been inspected and is stable. One repaired top crack at f-hole that was professionally done with good cosmetic touch-up. The tone and playability are great. You would have to pay lots more today for a new mandolin with this level of tone... Chad Fadely at our store ranks it "among the best".

While this instrument has a lot of player wear, it is fun to know who the player was, and that he used this mandolin to develop his own A design!

     Exceptional original condition. There is only a few very light 'touch marks' here and there, almost no sign of fret wear. All original parts. This is an extremely nice example of some of the finest handwork by the celebrated master luthier, Robert L Givens.
     Truly a handmade work of art, these mandolins were all handbuilt in Givens' workshop in North Idaho, using NO CnC technology. Every part was made by Givens, using handbuilt jigs and forms. The workmanship is impeccable.
     Dramatically figured Maple back, sides and neck. Englemann Spruce top (hand-harvested by Bob Givens). Ebony radiused fingerboard. Ebony adjustable bridge. Gold Schaller tuners and gold 2-pc tailpiece.
    Fully multiple bound, with ivoroid outer bindings. Peghead has the elaborate engraved pearl and abalone Givens "Torch" inlaid in peghead, and the hand-cut and hand-engraved "snowflakes" inlaid as position dots in fingerboard.
     The overall "look" is great. The color is beautiful and vivid, without being garish. The set-up is great, playability is great. 1 1/8" width at nut.
     These A-models from Givens from 1986 to 1992 are regarded by many players to be better than many A-models from makers today that cost $10,000 to $15,000. If you play one that has good set-up, you'll hear it, too. There is all of the depth and balance, but also a sparkling lyrical quality in these later Givens A's that many experienced players know well.
     This particular instrument is from the private collection of Greg Boyd, and is being offered for sale because the "House of Fine Instruments" needs a new roof.

Exc(+) condition. Here is a fine example of a Givens A-6 from the personal collection of Greg Boyd. Typical brilliant Flamed Maple, set off by the beautiful sunburst color. Select grade Englemann spruce top, from tree felled by Bob Givens. Everything is original and in fine condition: Gold hardware, Nut, Handmade Ebony Bridge, Small vintage style frets. Typical of the nice A-6 models from Givens, this mandolin shows off the elaborate hand-cut, hand-inlaid, and hand-engraved Torch inlaid in peghead, as well as the hand-cut snowflakes inlaid in the radiused Ebony fingerboard.
    These mandolins are obviously great investments, as everyone who plays or hears them agree that they are producing tones that meet or surpasses those of mandolins selling for $14,000 to $15,000...!
   Listen to the soundbite and you'll hear why we are always so keen on the mandolins from R.L. Givens. These soundbites were recorded with strings that are 3-to-5 years old, and still the great sound of the mandolin is clearly heard - the attack, the depth, and the expressive highs.

1990 R.L. Givens A-6 Exceptional Mandolin 'Sold'

     Exceptional original condition. Here is a very nice mandolin offered up from Greg Boyd's private collection. It seems the need for a newer motorcycle is overpowering the need to keep his collection intact.
     Excellent in every way, this mandolin exemplifies the reason Bob Givens will be noted in history as one of the great mandolin builders. Very high grade Figured Maple back, sides and neck, with Englemann Spruce top. Ebony fingerboard and bridge and peghead overlay. Multiple Ivoroid bindings on body, fingerboard and peghead.
     There was no CnC machinery in Givens' shop, only the jigs made by hand by Givens, who even designed and built his own pantograph carvers for rough-carving the tops and backs instead of buying ready made machines to do the work.
     Take a close look at the elaborate Torch inlaid in the peghead and the Snowflakes in the fingerboard... These are all designed, handcut and hand engraved by Bob Givens.
     Even the Englemann Spruce was usually hand-harvested by Bob Givens or Liz Sedler.
    Givens made a lot of "F" mandolins, as well as his numerous "A" models, but among the afficianados the A's are known for putting out an exceptionally great tone, as well as being finely built. The A-6 and some few A-6 Customs (along with his F-5's, of course), represent the epitome of his 30 years building mandolins.
     This mandolin shows off the vivid red-gold sunburst Givens is known for, and has a truly wonderful voice. The sound has a very expressive lyrical quality as well as being powerful.

It is priced lower than later model A-6's because it doesn't have as dramatically figured Maple as later ones have and it doesn't have an adjustable truss-rod, like the models from 1992 have.

In fact, the following morning after the recordings, John Reischman stopped by our booth at the festival that year to tell us that, after recording over 60 instruments at the 'tasting', that there were only two that were "great" - THIS Givens A-6 and his own Loar F-5.
     The only modification done to this mandolin is to have the fingerboard extension scalloped. It is in great shape and truly will go head-to-head with any other mandolin for sound.

This is one of only approximately 50 or 55 Givens mandolins with an adjustable truss rod. Multiple bindings throughout. Ivoroid outer bindings, with black lines showing on top, back and sides of body, side of fingerboard, and top/side of peghead. R.L.

Original two-piece gold tailpiece. Pearl nut, radiused Ebony fingerboard with frets in great shape. Some time ago, fingerboard was milled, with some of the engraving of the "snow-flakes" being worn away. This small thing is the only detriment to this mandolin.
     Hold on to your hat...! I'm not kidding in saying that this particular F-5 may be the finest F-5 Givens I have ever had in my possession. It has the special "hard-to-get sound" that's found in the finest, $20,000 mandolins. If the engraving was re-worked into the fingerboard dot inlays, this mandolin should be $12,000 or more. Again, I am not lightly saying that this is one of the finest Givens mandolins ever that we have seen, and we have seen many.

1999 Rigel S-100 Mandolin 'Sold'

     Exc(+) original condition. Not much sign of prior ownership - only a few "touch marks" on the top. NO fret wear, no bangs or pickwear. The S-100 is pretty close to their newer "G-110", except the S-100 has plain Maple. It isn't noted on the label, but I think this is a "DeLuxe" version. It has gold hardware, and the spruce top appears to be either Englemann or Adirondack Red Spruce (hard to tell with the sunburst color). Ebony radiused fingerboard, scalloped at extension. Ebony bridge. Comes with factory installed piezo pickup and strap buttons. Gold Schaller tuners, gold 1-pc tailpiece and strap button.
     Rigel always had good pickups in their mandolins, and they work very well for live stage use.

Previously Owned Weber Custom Vintage F Mandola made with Aged Tonewoods Mandolin 'Sold'

     Almost new condition. No real wear anywhere - no dings or dents. Set-up is great. This Mandola has no problems.
     Made with 70-90 year-old tonewoods. Visually, it is completely stunning, with beautiful sunburst finish that shows off the woods and bindings perfectly. Body is multiple bound with Ivoroid showing black line at top and back edges. Peghead binding shows black line on face. Fingerboard is bound with single ivoroid.
     Width at nut is 'a hair less than' 1 1/4". Scale length is 17".
    These old cured tonewoods are 70-90 years old. Weber acquired these woods from a respected west coast maker of violins, violas, cellos and basses back around 2006, and have been steadily putting it to best use in building mandolins and mandolas like these, that rival the look of the old originals, and even surpass them for perfection of tone. We have seen time after time when these are directly compared to original 80 and 90 year old F-4's and H-4's, that the newer Webers often BEAT the old Gibsons, for balance, attack, single string, chord chop, depth of tone, clarity and projection...!
     Highly figured aged Maple back, sides and neck, with aged Sitka Spruce top. Ebony radiused fingerboard with dot position markers and traditional double-cut extension. Ebony peghead overlay with very tasteful "Torch" inlaid in center and The Weber logo at top. Ebony heelcap. Ebony truss-rod cover. Ebony 2-pc Brekke "traditional" adjustable bridge. Weber 1-pc cast tailpiece. Nickel hardware.
     This instrument has a very good voice. Balance, depth, attack, projection... all are very high on this mandolin. In fact, I can't think of a reason it shouldn't be in your home. These "custom vintage" mandolas and mandolins are made in limited supply by Weber. The cost of a new custom vintage Mandola like this one is well over $5000...

     Nice, strong sounding mandolin ready to play. These mandolins are built using 65-100 year old tonewoods, giving them a rich, lively sound and this one is no exception. This is Weber's take on an original F-4 with a few modern additions. Weber uses modern neck design on the Custom Vintage F's, so the neck is joined to the body at the 14th fret, instead of 9th fret, making for greater playability up the neck.
     Even when new, you can easily hear the old cured tonewoods. Most times when we have these examples at shows or festivals, customers point out that they sound better than original vintage Gibson oval hole mandolins when compared directly.
     This is a very nice bargain price, as new ones cost $5220 at the discounted selling price. Older examples have single ivoroid binding.

Weber Elite 1

New Weber Elite Mandolin 'Sold'

    This mandolin and others like it is the reason we've been so excited about Weber Mandolins lately. Ok, I admit that we've always liked the whole crew there, and have had many great mandolins for almost 12 years now... But in the last 2 1/2 years we have seen another level in the craft from Weber.
     Beginning in 2006 Weber began to make many instruments from old seasoned woods, as well as searching for and paying for higher grades of newer tonewoods.
     They didn't advertise this. They just relied on dealers like us to let the buyers know what is going on by showing them the product. We have been doing so for awhile now, and I can attest that the mandolins are being highly complimented by the most experienced players in the business...
     This Weber 'Elite' has just so many things going for it that they are hard to remember them all, but I'll try:
     Red Spruce top / 1-pc Old Wood back, sides and neck / Half herringbone 'roped' purflings on top and back / Bound f-holes / Scalloped fingerboard extension / Custom 'filled' tailpiece / Custom Color / Hand-rubbed Spirit Varnish finish.
     It looks great - feels great, too... But the best part is the sound. It just 'has that sound'. Most of the very few 'Elite' models that Weber has produced have tone bar bracing, but this one is x-braced.

Old-style Weber script logo. Ebony pickguard made "bi-level" to match scalloping of fingerboard. Custom color. Matte finish is a further option choice that some people choose.
