RM-1 Walnut

Our new mandolin spent two years in R&D before finally making it into production in January of 2005.  It has traditional features such as a biscuit bridge and vintage-style open gear tuners, combined with modern appointments, including an intonated saddle and a comfortably radiused, extended fretboard.  The neck is made from highly figured maple.  The body is carved from two-piece walnut, with a figured maple top.  The Art-Deco cast tailpiece and antique brass parts are exclusive to this instrument.
