2015 Birdseye Maple large mandolin
Vic Gammon is selling his 2015 large bodied mandolin. He recently brought it to show me, and it really is in as new condition, looking and sounding wonderful. The back is particularly pretty Birdseye maple, as shown in the photographs.
Stefan made this outstanding mandolin for me in 2015. I have used it considerably since then, mainly for recording purposes and for playing for pleasure. You can hear it, for example, on my 2016 recording ‘Early Scottish Ragtime’ (Fellside FECD276) and on some of the soundtrack music for the film ‘All My Life’s Buried Here’ (2020).
The mandolin is in immaculate condition. Sadly the development of arthritis in my hands has made it difficult for me to play close-fretted instruments to my satisfaction. I have therefore, very reluctantly, decided to sell it. My asking price is £6,250.
I live in Hexham, Northumberland and you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01434 600526.
