Fin Mc 8 F-Style Mandolin Sunburst by Fintan McEnroe, 2020

Fin Mc 8 F-Style Mandolin Sunburst by Fintan McEnroe, 2020

Here we have the Fin Mc 8 F-style mandolin from Fintan McEnroe, working in Toronto but originally from Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan, Ireland. The ‘8’ in the name refers to the mandolin’s serial number and production sequence; the Fin Mc 9 mandolin is also available.
The Fin Mc 8 is a traditional F-Style mandolin, with a carved Sitka Spruce top and Curly Maple for the sides, neck and carved back. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony and the neck contains an adjustable truss rod. The body has double layer binding, and the inlays are a combination of Mother of Pearl and Abalone. The finish is a hand-rubbed lacquer sunburst.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

The Gibson Batwing SG made its debut in 1966, with an extended pickguard covering the top above, between and below the strings, and also supporting the pickups. These were produced until 1971, at which point the SG Deluxe replaced it. The SG has been used by many players over the years, and the Gibson Batwing SG is very frequently seen in the hands of the great Angus Young of AC/DC. The large ‘batwing’ pickguard is well suited to an active playing style. It offers significant protection to the finish. And, incidentally, much easier pickup and electronic maintenance. That can be a real bonus for a touring musician!

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio ‘Les Paul 100’ Manhattan Midnight Blue, 2015

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio 'Les Paul 100' Manhattan Midnight Blue, 2015

The Gibson Les Paul Studio line delivers all the core features of a Les Paul at a lower price, and this is largely achieved by reducing decoration. The body and neck are not bound, and the Maple top is a ‘B’ grade, which is a visual rating (and it should be noted that many historic ‘Gold Top’ models also used Maple of this grade). However, there’s no skimping on the hardware.
