Hello Cafe friends,
Up for your pleasure is a beautiful Bruce Taggart F5, with an upgraded James mandolin tailpiece. I'll assume most of you know Bruce's fine craftsmanship, both with violins and mandolins, but if you don't let me gush a little. Bruce builds some of the best traditional bluegrass mandolins, and this one has all the hallmarks of his craftsmanship. I've owned mandolins built by Brentrup, Givens, Randy Wood, Girouard, Gibson and others, and this Taggart holds its own on all of these.
This F5 has the balance, easy play-ability, sustain, clarity and projection that we expect from a finely crafted mandolin. Apologies for the mediocre photo because it does not do justice to Bruce's fine craftsmanship and the beautiful woods he used for this instrument.
It's currently undergoing a fine tuning by Steve Perry of Mandovoodoo; I've been very impressed by Steve's "magic", and I'll continue sending him instruments for his refinements. Glad to send you more detailed photos, and a sound clip that highlights its tonal beauty.
Priced to sell at $3790, or best offer, which includes shipping in the lower 48, and a donation to the Mandolin Cafe.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest.
