Combining artful design and exacting build standards, Max and Lauri Girouard are making some of the finest mandolins available today.
Why We Love This
The elegant two-point mandolin has steadily gained a greater following in recent years. It is no longer a question of A or F. Combining the comfort of an A style with an elevated style and panache, great sustain and tonal heft, the two point offers an exciting third way to go for mandolin players and collectors.
If you follow our site regularly, you'll see several variations on the two-point theme. We love Girouard's take on the two point: the sound is punchy and warm yet clear, with ample volume nice and wonderful, lively chime on top.
This latest arrival boasts a beautiful, one-piece back paired to a Red spruce top in a lovely, red sunburst, varnish finish. We have long praised Girouard's stellar build quality, whch easily rivals other top-shelf makers on the scene today.
