This new Blues Hardware 2-point mandolin is quite striking in appearance. Asymmetrical 2-point construction with tone bar top bracing.
Rosewood peghead veneer shows Blues Hardware logo Ebony inlay. Nickel Rubner tuners with black buttons. Bone nut. Compound radiused Bocote fingerboard has side inlays of corian, inlaid cleverly at the corner of fingerboard. This allows them to act as position markers from the side of f.b. or from the face. Rosewood floating pickguard. Jotoba adjustable bridge and tailpiece top. Walnut armrest.
ALL parts (except tuners), are designed and individually made.
The mandolin body has flamed Maple bindings around top and back edges. Comes with string overtone dampener, also designed and produced by Tom Sheehy.
