Andrew Tatnell Custom 'Swiss Moon Spruce / Australian Blackwood' Mandolin

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Andrew Tatnell mandolins are built in small batches by hand in his Canberra workshop. All his instruments have matching timbers for the back, sides and neck; 'A' style oval hole and cross bracing; fairly wide string spacing/nut width; quality tailpieces and tuners; custom made bridges; hard evo 'gold' frets on radiused fretboards; carbon fibre neck strengthening and/or truss rods; and natural edge finishing.

Most importantly Tatnell mandolins are made to maximise tone, volume, sustain and resonance. If you have not played a hand-carved mandolin, you will be surprised at how responsive they are compared with flat-topped instruments. His instruments have carved soundboards and carved backs. They can be played softly or loudly providing a great range of volume for fitting in with other instruments or when soloing.

This gorgeous custom build features a Swiss Moon Spruce top with figured Australian Blackwood back and sides. It comes fitted with a K&K pickup and ships in a standard hard case.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at info@acousticcentre.com.au or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
