The new Deluxe Bouzouki and Octave mandolins (MA-500) feature improved looks, sound and playability. These mandolins come with an extra deep body that gives them a bigger sound with lots of bark. They have a gracefully shaped, offset double cutaway design to allow easy access to the upper frets.
These mandolins feature highly flamed maple back & sides with a chocolate brown finish. The bodies are bound in grained ivoroid with Abalone purfling. Other features include diecast tuning machines with a 16:1 gear ratio, a compensated rosewood bridge, and an ivoroid heal cap.
