|Comments||Here is a 2006 Stonebridge M23-SF F style mandolin.
Stonebridge mandolins are built in Prauge, Czech Republic, by Frantisec Furch. Formerly a banjo player in Czech country and bluegrass bands, Furch has been building since 1981. The Furch company was first registered in 1990, when the then-Communist government relaxed restrictions on private enterprise. They grew rapidly in the freer climate.
This is an F-style mandolin featuring clean, solid wood construction. It’s in excellent shape, plays very well and is crisp and resonant.
