"This new beautifully inlaid museum-quality double neck mandolin & mandola was designed by Antoniotsai. It was hand inlaid with several hundred pieces of abalone and mother-of-pearl by a renowned luthier on Tony's workshop team. Antoniotsai is an internationally-renknowned Taiwanese inlay artist and luthier. He is also a master repairman and restore of museum pieces. This mandolin has a beautifully bright, sweet sound with plenty of volume."

"This instrument is hand made of solid woods No plywood is used in its construction and only the finest materials were used in its construction. No compromises were made, no corners were cut. We strive to make every instrument's voice loud, clear, and distinctive. This can only happen with solid wood instruments."

Report for this particular instrument

Originally from Antoniotsai's Guitar and Mandolin Arts. Received in excellent condition. Required bridge setup for intonation. Fretwork excellent on this instument. Tested okay to offer for sale. Tested and setup by Dane Clarke at the workshops of MandoHarp Australia in Nambucca Heads.

Note: On 30th October 2007 we brought this instrument back into the workshop to fit floating sound posts under both bridges as we have found by experiment with others that this improves the tone and tuning stability on this design.
