Here's a special one. At this point Max Girouard has built several mandolins with top wood from the same reclaimed Alaskan Yellow cedar tree. Each time, the results have been exceptionally good.
When folks call inquiring about a great oval hole mandolin sound, this is, frankly, even better than what they have in mind. Wide open, very three-dimensional tone, with rich sustain, full, warm bass register, and dulcet trebles. For Celtic to classical, old-time to all manner of global folk and jazz styles–this will take you there in a heartbeat.
As with all Girouard instruments, this mandolin features top-shelf build quality and finish work all around.
