We are pleased to have this beautiful Girouard Oval Hole in the shop! Max and Lauri build their instruments by hand in Rhode Island and have developed a stellar reputation for producing gorgeous looking, and sounding mandolins. This oval hole variant features an Engelmann spruce top and red maple back and sides along with a hand applied burst and a varnish finish. The sound is remarkably balanced and warm with a powerful bass response and a blooming sustain. Max and Lauri's instruments have a voice that is all their own and they never seem to hang around the shop very long. Priced with a hardshell case.
