New "Studio" level guitar-bodied octave mandolin just in from Rhode Island's Girouard Mandolins! This instrument features all solid carved woods -- a Sapele body and European Spruce soundboard -- and a lustrous ambertone sunburst finish. The sound is very warm and open, with a mellowness not often found in maple-bodied mandolin family instruments (it would work particularly well for players interested in using it to accompany vocals). With custom-built Ameritage hard case!
