Why We Love This
Brand new A5 Studio fresh off the bench from Rhode Island-based Girouard mandolins. The "Studio" level instruments retain all the quality of their more fully-appointed mandolins in a stripped-down, understated aesthetic. The sunburst top pairs nicely with a deep chocolate back and sides, black binding completing an elegant presentation.
Max and Lauri Girouard have by now established themselves as a serious, very highly regarded small-shop maker on the contemporary mandolin scene and continue to garner rave reviews. Play a few notes on one and you'll quickly understand their enduring appeal.
