What We Think

Juuuuuusssst right! The tone is crisp, never burnt, and it's just bright enough to shine, not enough to blind. Top all that gorgeous carved maple and spruce off with a under-stated, classy burst and you're in mando heaven.

Manufacturer's Description from Other

At the top of the list of the Larrivee Mandolin's features is "Bark"...the oh-so illusive "Chunk" as well as the "Throatiness" that mandolin players seek. The sound is crafted through meticulous construction and a focused attention to the most minute detail. The traditional water stained sunburst brings out a stunning figure in our Master Grade Maple & Spruce, and it's all encased in a ultra-thin custom formulated varnish. Finish off that list with custom casted hardware including: tailpiece, tuners, and loar style bridge.

- Master Grade Flamed Maple
- Master Grade Sitka Spruce Top
- Master Grade Flamed Maple Neck
- Ebony Fretboard w/Microdot Inlays
- Multi-Strip Binding
- Mother-of-Pearl Headstock Logo
- Casted Tail-Piece
