For your consideration is this Unique Ornately Inlaid and also quite interesting, Mandolin, with a hard shell case.

This instrument was built in a school of lutherie in Taiwan, that specializes in the fine art of inlay.

All solid woods were used in this instruments construction,  Canadian Spruce top, with spalted Maple trim, hardrock Maple neck, flame Maple back and sides, an Ebony fingerboard, and Ebony armrest.

The Mandolin has gold tuners, with pearl tuner buttons, a bone nut, an adjustable Rosewood bridge, with Bone saddle, and a Brass tailpiece.

This instrument is inlaid extensively with a floral and vine motif, in pink and green Abalone, and Mother of Pearl shell.

There is inlay on the headstock, fingerboard, armrest , spalted Maple trim , top binding, and back binding, heel block, as well as the entire back of the instrument, it is quite beautiful.  All the trim is wood, the strap button is inlaid as well.

The design of this instrument is interesting, and functional, there are 20 smaller sound holes in the spalted Maple area that suround the Canadian Spruce top, this design actually amplifies the sound and adds projection. This mandolin is quite loud,  It is amazing how much sound something this size can produce.

The action is low and it is easy to play. The frets are unworn and there is no buzzing anywhere on the fretboard.

There is a small repair to a hairline crack at the bottom on the back of the instrument in the end block area. It is difficult to see and does not effect the playability or sound of the instrument. The repair is solid.  We took the repair into consideration when we set the price of this auction, it was quite expensive prior to the repair.

A hard shell Mandolin case is included with this instrument.
