Description

What magic is this? What if Lloyd Loar had stuck around a little longer at Gibson?  What if demand for the A-5 model had actually ticked up in the 1920s? What would a near-century-old, top-shelf, refined A-style mandolin sound and feel like today? Mr. MacRostie's Red Diamond Vintage A-5 has us daydreaming about what might have been. The mandolin looks less like a 2010 model and more like a well preserved instrument from the 1920s. The super-light build makes for a weightless playing experience, the smallest effort driving the top with ease. Toneful, with that enviable, vocal midrange than often eludes many a modern mandolin. This Vintage A-5 is simply a joy to play and to hear in the room.

Priced with Heirloom hard-shell case.
