A New Millennium Acoustic Design Mix A5 model mandolin was given away today, October 15, 2007 on the Mandolin Cafe.

The winning entry was a visitor from Salt Lake City, Utah chosen from 5,695 registrants.

The giveaway instrument features an ebony fingerboard with a 12" radius that is 1 3/32" at the nut, Grover tuners, a Steve Smith adjustable ebony bridge, an engraved James tail-piece, an internally-mounted Schertler CDyn pickup for superb amplification and a TKL-style hardshell case.

The base price of the A5 mandolin is $3500. The Mix A5 is built entirely and finished by hand, demanding a great deal of skilled work to produce a mandolin with exceptional tone, fit and finish.

The Mandolin Cafe offers product giveaways from time to time. Past organizations donating product for these events have included Collings, Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments, Breedlove, D'Addario Strings, Acoustic Disc, SoundArt Recordings, Colorado Case Company and Rigel Mandolins.
