Rich, sonorous Trillium mandola from highly regarded New Hampshire maker Bob Abrams.
This mandola features an absolutely gorgeous, figured mango back and sides paired with a clear, fine-grained cedar top. It is simply a blast to play: chords ring out with liveliness, and single note lines sustain for days.
The Trillium features a bound and double-purfled body, headstock, fingerboard and soundhole; ebony headstock overlay with an intricate "Painted Trillium" floral inlay; an abalone rosette; and engraved James tailpiece in gold with matching Gotoh tuners.
Refined aesthetic, stunning tonewoods, great warmth, and excellent playability–a lot to love! Priced with custom hard case.
