A new A-5 style mandolin. Sitka soundboard, Australian blackwood sides back and neck, Macassar ebony fretboard and head overlay. CF bar in the neck, ivoroid binding, Golden Age tuners and tailpiece. The new owner picks it up on Friday. The tune is Clementine turned into a mazurka by an old-time dance musician here in Australia.

A lovely instrument, Graham, and a great sound and balance across the strings.
