Washburn is pleased to introduce the new M117SW 2-point mandolin. With its distressed look, the M117SW has a broken in and well played feel. Only premium woods like solid flamed maple and solid spruce have been used in crafting this unique and striking instrument. The new M117SW echoes the trends in mandolin styles of the early 20th century. Unlike many 2-point mandos, Washburn has chosen to offer f-holes for a more traditional look and tone. The M117SW features aged hardware including a distressed Allen style tailpiece and ebonite tuner buttons with a hand carved solid spruce top with rope purfling and book matched carved solid flamed maple back and sides. The flamed maple neck supports a slightly wider (31mm at the nut) ebony fingerboard with wider string spacing for playing ease and comfort.
