New fern A-style mandolin from Mando Mo Strings Naming Contest

New fern A-style mandolin from Mando Mo Strings Naming Contest

To enter the contest, post your name suggestion (keep it to one suggestion please) either in the Mandolin Players group on the original post, or by PMing Adam Sweet on Facebook

This new fern A-style mandolin has been constructed with hand-carved air-dried sugar maple back and sides, Sitka spruce top.  It comes with a solid cast tailpiece, a hand-carved Brekke bridge and hand-wound Optima strings from Germany.

You will be able to buy this mandolin from the Mando Mo Website.  We don't know the price yet and with the tariffs now affecting prices, it's confusing, but you should feel free to check with Al at Mando Mo any time to learn more.  You can reach him at mandomostrings@yahoo.com
