If you're looking for a deal on one of Max & Lauri Girouard's A5 Concert mandolins, this 2017 model is the one to jump on. The A5 Concert is Girouard's deluxe version of their standard model, and has all the trimmings, bells and whistles you could want. This pre-owned instrument has been played a lot and shows appropriate signs of wear, but remains in excellent structural condition. The sound is crisp, quick and responsive, and as much of a pleasure as it is to play on its own, it has the voice to project at a jam or cut through in a mix. The compound radius board and slightly thinner carve are extremely comfortable and feels fast all the way up the neck. The beautiful hand applied burst is complimented by a gorgeous piece of red maple. Priced with hardshell case.
