That’s slightly crazy—not risky. You see, before you play the Model M, know that a whole bunch of other musicians already have. We gave early production models to musicians. Had them take them on the road, play in front of a crowd, play in the heat, play on a bus at four in the morning. Their feedback is built into every mandolin we make.
It's the first model built in our shop in Marshall, Michigan. Without our location here, 30 miles down the road from the birthplace of the modern day mandolin, this instrument wouldn't mean as much to our entire team. Extraordinary and accessible the Model M brings together qualities at the core of our business and our approach to making traditional instruments.
History. Countless hours honing our craft. A bit of crazy. Yes, a lot more goes into this mandolin than first meets the eye.
