Very good traditionally styled A-model mandolin from Bob Brook.
Sale priced at $2,650.00
VG (+) condition. 1 3/32″ width at nut, just a hair narrower than 1 1/8″ with a full U profile. Bob Brook is known in the Northwest as a good guitar and mandolin builder, who lived at various times in Missoula, Montana and Sandpoint, Idaho area, where he hobnobbed and worked with many of the celebrated luthiers from that area during the 1970s and 1980s. Mr. Brook was a contemporary with Bob Givens, Nick Kukich (Franklin Guitars), and Steven Andersen, Mike Dulak, and others. Nice Engelmann Spruce top. Very nice maple back, sides, and neck. Two-piece neck with ebony stringer and ebony heelcap. Ebony peghead overlay, flat fingerboard, bridge, and endpin. Top and back are bound with single ivoroid binding. Very nice and unique single mother of pearl flower inlay in peghead, with RNBrook logo inlaid. 4-on-a-plate Kluson tuners with antiqu’ed ivoroid buttons. Nickel tailpiece. Repaired crack from top of bass F-hole to binding. Smaller crack repaired at opposite end of same F-hole (harder to see). A 4-inch back crack was also repaired in the maple near the widest bout on the bass side.
Woody, strong sound, that comes alive with bold chop and robust single notes.
Comes with HC.
