FO (2012) Mandolins

The traditional Florentine shape of the Breedlove American FO is simple and elegant.  Deep and rich, with a complex and full voice, this instrument really sings through a single oval sound hole in the body.   The combination of Sitka Spruce for the top wood and Flamed Big Leaf Maple for the back and sides produce a full range of bass and bright, high end tones in a stunning package.  Amazing clarity and sustain are provided through a maple neck, ebony bridge and fretboard, while the radiused fingerboard and oversize frets allow for extreme comfort. Finished in a satin sunburst, the silky feel of this mandolin will make you never want to put it down.
