In our mission to bring the finest locally-made instruments to our showroom, we're happy to be stocking the wonderful mandolins from Max Girouard of Rhode Island. This A5 "Ensemble" features an Engelmann Spruce top and Bigleaf Maple back and sides. The tone is very punchy and pronounced, and compares favorably to the best A-model mandolins in its price point! Outstanding fit and finish work ~ Girouard's mandolins exhibit a level of craftsmanship we're proud to display alongside the best instruments in the world. Priced with hard case.
