“Songbird” – maple & spruce A-5 mandolin

This gorgeous mandolin was custom-built for the talented Sarah Larkin of local favorites The Real Sarahs. It’s a classic A-5, with eastern sugar maple (Massachusetts) sides/back/neck, Sitka spruce top, ebony fingerboard/overlay/pickguard/bridge, and ivoroid binding, as well as a hand-rubbed sunburst & nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The inlay was Sarah’s idea and David’s design & was hand-cut from abalone, mother-of-pearl, and Sterling silver.
