Building the Campfire mandolin requires only basic hand tools, so it's perfect for beginners. Veteran instrument makers will enjoy it too, because it's a quality instrument in the vintage Army-Navy style. The parts are made to fit together correctly, to save you time and work.
Great sound, great price, fun to build and fun to play!
The Campfire mandolin kit features a traditional flat solid Sitka spruce top, bent sides and flat back of mahogany, machined mahogany bolt-on neck with steel reinforcement bar and slotted rosewood fingerboard, spruce braces, mahogany body blocks, and an ebony bridge.
