I'm selling my BRW MA-H2 mandolin. This mandolin is #120 built by Ben Wilcox in Central Ohio. BRW mandolins are well respected and this one is a real gem. The fit and finish are really nice. I've had my eye on a blackface mando for a while and and am selling to finance this acquisition.
The top is Adirondack Spruce top with nicely figured maple back, sides and neck. It has varnish finish and is attractively accented with 3-ply binding. The ebony fretboard is radius and it has a BRW ebony custom bridge and tone bar bracing. The mandolin comes with a very cool "aged" James tailpiece which compliments the Golden Age tuning machines. The headstock inlay is a very tasteful torch and "BRW" logo.
This mandolin sounds great and has had a recent professional set-up.
It is in excellent condition with minor fret wear. There is a small area of wear on the treble side which appears to be from an aggressive pinky. The wear is not through the finish. Nice hard shell case is included.
$2,350 includes shipping in the continental US. 48 hour trial. You pay shipping both ways if returned.
