Description

Colorado mandolin builder Mike Atkinson has been crafting affordable high quality mandolins in the Denver Metro Area for around a decade. Most of his offerings are two-point mandolins that often feature alternative wood combinations besides the standard spruce and maple wood pairing. This Atkinson A2 Two Point features a solid sinker redwood top and solid flamed maple back and sides. Both the fingerboard and bridge are made from Purple Heart, which really looks great on this unique mandolin. The builder incorporated a fun tree design in the headplate made out of maple, purple heart, and wenge. Another fun design element are three small MOP dots on the sinker redwood top just atop the bass F hole. It has a comfortable smaller body that creates a brighter sound yet this piece still has plenty of volume and projection. If you ask us this is a great deal for a hand crafted all solid wood mandolin.

This includes a new hardshell case.
