F-Style Mandolins

All of our mandolins are built to your specific requirements.

Our F-Style Mandolins are base on a traditional Gibson Loar design and incorporates some innovative engineering advances like a Tension Compensated Fret Scale to eliminate any sharpness of fretted notes higher up the neck, regardless of action height.  We offer two different headstock styles, traditional F5 and a slightly modified F5 headstock for a unique look.

Handcrafted

My goal is to build traditionally styled mandolins based on the Loar F5 & A5 original designs using the only the highest quality materials, hardware, using innovative engineering & construction techniques for the  professional musician.

Superior Tone

I use an Agilent 35670 digital spectrum analyzer to very accurately measure ALL of the resonant frequencies of a soundboard (using a calibrated hammer and accelerometers!) which allows me to consistently tune soundboards for maximum resonance across a specific range of notes on the fret board.
