Mandolins, we love them. Our Mia mandolin tops are made from solid carved spruce, and the back, sides and necks are made from solid carved figured maple. The necks are fitted with adjustable truss rods, rosewood fretboards and bone nuts. We can even install pickup systems too during your build. We build both A-style and F-style mandolins.
The Mia mandola's with their full rich bass tone take you back to a simpler time when the blend of mandolin, mandola, bass and stamping feet was all you needed for an all night party of dancing, jigs and joy. The Mia mandola's have a 17 inch scale length, solid carved spruce tops, solid carved figured maple back, sides and necks. The necks are fitted with bone nuts, adjustable truss rods, and rosewood fretboards. They come with oval or F-holes and can be fitted with pickups upon request.
Now it's time for the grown-ups to step up to the stage and play. Introducing the Mia F-Style Octave Mandolin. This grown up version of a mandolin has a 22 inch scale length, all solid carved spruce top, and solid carved maple back, sides and neck. The sound is so deep and rich, it will make a guitar weep for jealousy. The neck is fitted with and adjustable truss rod, bone nut and rosewood fret board. They come in the color of your choosing, and with oval or F-holes. And yes they can come with pickup systems as well. Engravings and pick guards are optional too.
A customer told me a few years ago about how cool it would be if I could build a 2-point mandolin. Will finally after 2 years of designing, sanding and building, the Mia G2 is here. The top is solid carved spruce, and the back, sides and neck are solid carved figured Maple. The neck has adjustable truss rod, bone and rose wood fretboard. The generous oval hole with scalloped X-tone bars lets this mandolin sing out above any choir. The tone is very woody with a good clear bass, and smooth highs. The action is low, and solid cast tailpiece really increases the resonance. The mandolin in the picture is available now. Give us a call 501-314-8967 to order one, or send us an email email@example.com. There is also a contact form on the home page.
This is the new Mia 2-Point Mandolin. Solid carved spruce top, solid flamed maple back, sides, and neck, rose wood fretboard, adjustable truss rod, bone nut, solid cast tail piece. She is also fitted with scalloped X tone bars. The finish is a hand rubbed oil and shellac. The color is a take on the fire storm I do on the F-Style mandolins I build here. This baby is smooth, loud and woody. Love this baby.
Howdy. This is a video of one of the Mia F-Style Mandolas I have built for a customer. She is acoustic/electric. I did this one in the starry night blue finish. The finish is done in shellac and oil. Top is solid carved spruce, and the back, neck and sides are done in solid carved figured maple. The top is fitted with scalloped X spruce tone bars. I just happened to have a green pickguard
