2010  •  Flat Teardrop
SN 189  •  Maple / Cedar
Shatten Pro P/U installed
Oval Soundhole  •  Hard Case

This Flat A-model mandolin has quite a bit more sound than you are paying for… Mr Morris is known for bargain mandolins and this one is no exception. Lovely quick and sure tone that has just the right amount of oval sound hole characteristics.

Two-pc figured Maple back, Maple sides. Highly figured 2-pc Maple neck with 3-pc hardwood stringer along the back of neck. The neck is a modified “V” profile. Snakehead peghead shape with gold tuners. Rosewood peghead overlay with iridescent logo at top and floral motif at center. The top is handsome Cedar with multiple wood purfling lines seen around the top (and back), edges and around the oval soundhole. Ebony 2-pc adjustable bridge. Nickel 2-pc tailpiece. White/black/white abbreviated pickguard installed.

Some light signs of prior handling, but not much. This mandolin has a big full sound that pops right out at you. It sounds as good or better than many early Gibson oval hole mandolins.
Comes with Hard Case.
