This is a 2017 Silverangel Hybrid, build #396. The top is what makes it a hybrid. The bass half is old redwood and the treble half is Italian spruce. The back is one piece beautiful quilted maple. The black top is intentionally done by Ken to mask the differences in in the types of top wood. Ebony fretboard, Golden Age tuners, cast tailpiece and custom fitted ebony bridge made by Ken Ratcliff. Tortoise binding throughout -- front, back, neck, headstock. While this mandolin has the Silverangel signature tone, the treble side is a bit more lively due to the hybrid top. The armrest and Wood Nymph shown in the photo are not included in the sale. This mandolin has great volume, is responsive and plays very easily. Action is low and intonation is spot on. $1650 for a quick sale shipped to your USA address. HSC included.
