Washburn Americana Series all-solid F-Style Mandolin with solid carved European spruce top, and carved solid Mahogany back and sides, 1-1/4? bone nut, distressed satin finish. Hard shell case included. Washburn has been building mandolins since the late 1800s. Whether you’re a bluegrass, Celtic or rock player, see how the addition of a mandolin can broaden your sonic pallet and add a new dimension to your music. For traditionalists, you’ll find all the tone & projection you’d expect from our world class instruments. The Florentine style body design on the M108SW is deeper than traditional instruments for more volume and projection and it has a wider nut, with wider string spacing to accommodate bigger fingers.
