50TH Anniversary Model

50TH Anniversary Model – $22000

This guitar marks the 50th year I’ve been making instruments. In 1972 I took the leap of faith and quit my job as a draftsman at Boeing Aircraft and started making mandolins. I have never regretted that decision.

The 50th Anniversary, also called the Heartstrings Model, is constructed of Big Leaf maple and German spruce. It has an ebony fingerboard and ebony appointments, with rosewood burl and curly koa. The fingerboard inlay is ripple green abalone, and is an imaginary “heartline”, with the “heartbeats” falling on the appropriate fret marker positions. The body, neck, fingerboard and peghead are trimmed in ultra-thin ripple green abalone.

Scale: 25.5″
Nut: 1 3/4″
