This 1992 Flatiron Festival A is a fine mandolin from the Bozeman, Montana Flatiron shop. There is almost no player wear on this mandolin. No dings, no gouges, no finger wear… Even the frets barely have any wear.

This is a traditional A-model construction, with very nice highly flamed Maple back, sides and neck. The Spruce top is probably Sitka, although in the early 90’s it could’ve been Englemann Spruce. Ebony flat fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. Peghead has Flatiron logo at top and truss-rod access near the bone nut. Ebony adjustable 2-pc bridge.
The top edge has tortoise celluloid binding. Nickel Shaller tuners and nickel 2-pc tailpiece.

The Top and back of neck are black, while the back and sides of body are Chocolate Brown.

This is a strong mandolin with good tone and projection. Comes with good set-up and good hard shell case.
