John Jorgenson Signature Model

The Paris Swing Co. introduces the John Jorgenson signature Paris Swing mandolin.

The John Jorgenson Signature Mandolin has personal details, both cosmetically and soundwise, and according to Jorgenson, is "unlike anything that is currently available."

The mandolin features a solid sitka spruce top, solid AAA flamed back and sides, an ebony fretboard, a miniature D-hole soundhole with a Maccaferri-style rosette, and a clear pickguard with a Jorgenson label.

The mandolin comes in a black finish and has the Paris Swing "Tour Eiffel" headstock label in M.O.P./abalone and gold leaf.

John Jorgenson is a pioneer in the American gypsy jazz movement. Even with his eclectic history as a pop and rock artist, gypsy jazz is the style that's closest to his heart.

Jorgenson worked directly with Paris Swing Co. product designer Greg Rich to get his signature mandolin to meet his specifications.

Paris Swing mandolins are available in D-hole, oval-hole and F-hole, and in natural and sunburst. Greg Rich designed these mandolins with respect to the classic gypsy jazz instruments from the 1930s.
