Howdy folks. I have here one of Pulaski F-style mandolins that I build here in my shop. I always loved the color of my dad's 66 Buick Riviera. It was a cool plum color. And around his birthday, I get inspired to make a mandolin the color of his favorite car. So here is this years edition of the "Plum Crazy" Pulaski F7 mandolin.  This one has newest hand rubbed oil finish that I am using here in the shop. All the mandolins and mandolas I build this winter will have this hand rubbed oil finish. My finishes are now completely non-toxic and made from all natural substances.  The look of the flaming on this one, turned out really cool. The top is made of solid hand carved and graduated spruce with custom fit scalloped spruce tone bars. The flamed maple neck is fitted with a rosewood fretboard, polished bone nut (3 cm) and an adjustable truss rod. The back and sides are carved from solid flamed maple. The mandolin has a smooth woody tone that just begs for it to be played all night. This baby will ship with nickle wound Jim Dunlop mandolin strings. Because I think they look neat, and sound even better on this mandolin. The mandolin is new, has full setup, and the fitted case you see is included with the mandolin. The action on the mandolin strings is great, and it plays very easy. If you are going to get a mandolin, get a Mia, made in the USA.

Howdy folks. This new baby has been 6 months in the design and drawing and 3 months in the carving and building. Now she is ready for the world. Welcome "Faith" the new Mia FM-7 mandola. And she is one big baby. The overall length is 31 inches, the width of the body is 11 inches and scale length is 17 inches from nut to bridge.  The arched top is solid carved spruce with scalloped X spruce tone bars and an oval sound hole. The arched back is solid carved figured maple, as is the sides and neck. The neck is fitted with a 3.2 cm width polished bone nut, rose wood fretboard, and an adjustable truss rod. For added resonance I dressed her out with a solid cast tailpiece. The finish is a bold burnished red with a thin Shellac and lacquer. The volume on "Faith" is huge, and enthralling. It draws you in. The tone is a smooth woody bass experience with gorgeous clear highs. The sound just flows and resonates for what seems like forever. It is easy to play. You can tune this baby like a mandolin if you so desire too. 





Mia Mandola F Style mandolins

Howdy folks. This newest designed instrument from Clarinda's Crafts & Music. The overall length is 31 inches, the width of the body is 11 inches and scale length is 17 inches from nut to bridge.  This beauty has a built in pickup made here in my shop, and an active system preamp that has volume, bass, treble, middle and a tuner all in one compact super sounding unit right on the side.  The arched top is solid carved spruce with scalloped spruce tone bars. The arched back is solid carved figured maple, as are the sides and neck. The neck is fitted with a 3.2 cm width polished bone nut, rose wood fretboard, and an adjustable truss rod. For added resonance I dressed her out with a solid cast tailpiece. The finish is a hand rubbed oil.  The tone is a smooth woody, Chritmas Eve bass experience with Christmas morning choir like highs. The sound just flows and resonates for what seems like forever. It is easy to play. You can tune this baby like a mandolin, like a mandola, or like an octave mandolin. It sounds beautiful all 3 ways. 





The top on this beauty is made of solid hand carved and graduated spruce and fitted with scalloped X-spruce tone bars. This one has a beautiful red rose engraved and hand detailed on the back. The F8-E is acoustic/electric and fitted with a built in pickup that has a volume control. The neck is fitted with a rosewood fretboard, polished bone nut (3 cm) and an adjustable truss rod. The neck, back and sides are carved from figured maple. The finish is a beautiful desert amber with a thin Shellac and lacquer finish. Acoustically, the sound is clear and woody. Through an amp, the sound is full and beautiful, just like a real mandolin. The neck plays like butter. To further enhance the sound, I fitted the mandolin with a solid cast Allen style tail piece.
