.
Delightful dreadnought built by John Osthoff of Beckett, Ma. that features top shelf woods, superb fit and finish, first class appointments and a lovely voice. Just returned from the shop for a pro set up.

Specs: Wide grained Adirondack Spruce top, Mahogany back/sides/neck, Herringbone purfling and soundhole rosette, Toroise bindings, Ebony fingerboard with Mother-of-Pearl diamond inlays, Ebony bridge, and Schaller vintage style tuning gears with butterbean knobs.

Excellent-plus to near mint condition showing only light playwear. Top has some superficial finish scratches, treble side has a few indention type scratches and an area of very light finish checking. That's about it. Very clean guitar.

Has all the tonal attributes I'm so fond of in a Hog; dry, dynamic and articulate with big volume. Clean and sweet, but nicely balanced and warm. Really tempted to keep this one.

Includes TKL case. Trades considered on this fine, American made instrument.

Price: $2,499.95

It's probably been four or five years since mutt has had a Stanley mandolin and we'd forgotten what gems Chris builds. His mandolins are just straight up fabulous traditional, Loar style instruments. This recent example, s/n 76 features top shelf woods, excellent appointments and exceptional sound.

Specs: Adirondack Spruce top, highly figured one piece Maple back, Maple sides and neck in an iced tea burst varnished finish, 3-ply bindings throughout, flat Ebony fretboard, parallel tone bar bracing and an exquisite Abalone headstock inlay. Gold hardware includes an engraved James tailpiece and Grover 309 tuning machines.

Classic F-5 sound, warm and woody with exceptional mid-range "pop". Resonant and nicely balanced with a percussive chop and excellent volume. Poor man's Master Model.

Shows a couple light string scratches on the headstock and some minor clip-on tuner marks. Otherwise mint.

Includes a shaped TKL case. Trades gladly considered on this fine American made instrument.
