|Dear potenial buyer I have in my possesion 3 historical mandolins made by a master maker from America. They are in mint unused condition. And are worth £6400 I am selling them at £3500. I had them made so I could study historical performance for my MA. However I now wish to study the Baroque Viola and the Viola d'more.
1) Stradavarius 6c Baroque mandolin with a wedding cake rose and flamed maple back.
2) Baroque Genovese 6c Mandolin antique finish.
3) Classical Mozart period 4c Mandolin in an antique finish.
All come with polish and shipping crate made to fit them. They are made to the same standard you would expect from the finest makers available. They are made with the finest woods, and are made painstaiking accurate from historical plans and the study of the woods used. They would be a nice set of second instruments for any violin player.
I also have a double tone ring banjo with a carved neck and gold fittings for £295, a dojo with a flamed maple back £195, and two very lovely portuguese guitarras for any one thwat loves fado for £395 the pair. If you have anything intersting and that I might be interested in please give me an e-mail. I also like the Hardanger Fiddle etc.
Thank you for your time!
