'86 Knutson Songbird Emando - $1350

Photo for Ad 130212

If you've been looking for a great sounding emando that is also a GREAT looking F style this may be for you. This is an '86 Songbird made by John Knutson of Forrestville, CA who is now retired. John is a highly regarded luthier who made superb electric basses, guitars and mandolins. This one has a highly flamed curly maple top, mahogany back and sides. While the bass side f hole makes it look like it isn't a solid body, it really is. There is no resonating sound which makes it a really good practice mando too. The nut is about 1 3/16" and the neck feels just like my '95 A5 L. Frets have been dressed and the pick up has been reseated to the correct height. It has an Allen TP and comes with a new Travelite case. Especially given its age it is in great condition. There is a small chip on the back side of the rear point which can't be seen from the front. Workmanship on this mando is absolutely first class. I have more pics. Just ask. Shipping to CONUS addresses is $60.
