Breedlove American Series FF Mandolin
Breedlove American Series FF Mandolin Sunburst
With a design that harkens back to the golden era of mandolin building, the American Series FF mandolin combines the best traditional construction elements with Breedlove's cutting edge aesthetics and attention to detail. The F-style mandolin features a Florentine body design, with f-holes in the body. The result is a mandolin with a deeper, throatier voice, with lots of bark and plenty of bass. The solid Sitka spruce top and flamed maple back and sides complement these features, and add robust projection, so this F-style mandolin can be heard no matter what arrangement you find yourself in. Whether practicing at home, jamming with your buddies, or shredding some Bill Monroe licks at center stage, this 8-string sounds killer. The Breedlove mandolin 13.94" scale, 1-3/16" nut width, and 16" radius provides comfort and accessibility when running up and down the mandolin's 23 frets. The bolt-on maple neck and ebony bridge and fretboard provide amazing clarity and sustain, while also making the mandolin incredibly sturdy. Dressed in a smooth satin finish, and featuring Gotoh MF40R/MB tuners, and chrome hardware, this mandolin is truly a bluegrass looker, and will impress everybody within range of its killer tone and breathtaking looks. Includes Breedlove deluxe hardshell mandolin case.
