Archer's teardrop-shaped A-Style (Artist style) Mandolin with f-holes is delightful to play. The "A" body style is usually preferred when performing Celtic and folk music. The f-holes on this model offer a clear, crisp tone, and helping players to sound their best. This A-Style Mandolin has a spruce arch top with a rosewood fret board in a Tobacco Burst finish for a great look. Neck adjustments are made with the built-in truss rod. This Archer is a quality instrument at a modest price, and offers good performance and workmanship for musicians of all ages. Designed and performance-tested in the USA, the Archer A-Stile Mandolin is ready to play right out of the box.
