A rare teardrop mandolin from one of the giants of modern archtop lutherie.
Why We Love This
For anyone browsing our mandolin offerings, John Monteleone needs little introduction. One of the acknowledged masters of archtop instrument design, this is one of just a few A-style mandolins we have had come through the shop. With terrific single-note body and near-limitless headroom on tap, this is a mandolin capable of serious projection. It comes to us from a longtime client and collector, and is in very good condition.
Check out Ethan Setiawan in our demo video; in his supremely capable hands, this mandolin sounds absolutely lights out.
