Brisbane, California-—The Paris Swing Co. introduces its fine line of gypsy jazz instruments with new Paris Swing Mandolins featuring signature jazz detailing and a well-balanced bark.

Paris Swing Co. Mandolins are an absolute original and provide an innovative twist on the classic folk instrument.

Swing players and mandolin enthusiasts have dreamed for years of having a gypsy jazz mandolin made with solid woods, AAA flamed maple sides, ebony parts and other great options.

Product designer Greg Rich designed these mandolins with respect to the classic gypsy jazz instruments from the 1930s.

New Paris Swing mandolins are available in oval hole, D-hole and F-hole models, with vintage sunburst or natural finishes.

For nearly 15 years, they have traveled the world with their music, getting accolades from people such as the late George Harrison. The Robin Nolan Trio signature guitars and bass will be developed for release early next year. For more information on The Paris Swing Co., visit parisswing.com.
