Mike Vanden Guitars and Mandolins - Stretto Mandolin

This unique mandolin is based on the Simon Mayor model, but with a shorter 352mm scale. The sound is very responsive, with great depth of tone, a strong bass, complex mid range, and sweet trebles.

Visually the instrument is stunning. Highly figured Maple, European Spruce and Macasser Ebony, are combined with quilted Maple bindings, red lines and veneers.

A natural finish highlights the contrasting timbers. Macasser Ebony headstock veneer. Vintage style tuner bushings sit below the veneer surface, and the art deco inspired inlay is cut from mother of pearl and reconstituted coral.
