Cole Clark Violap with Horseshoe Pickup Tasmanian Blackwood, 2003

The Cole Clark Violap is based on the classic Weissenborn steel guitar body shape, but built as a semi-hollow for amplified use without feedback. The concept is similar to the thinline Gibson ES-335 series, with a solid center block in an arched-top body. Cole Clark was founded in 2001 by Adam Cole and Bradley Clark in Melbourne Australia, and focuses on building quality instruments using sustainably harvested tone woods mostly native to Australia.

Eastman MD815-V F-Style F-Hole Mandolin Antique Varnish

Eastman MD815-V F-Style F-Hole Mandolin Antique Varnish

The Eastman MD815-V F-Style F-Hole Mandolin is one of the most recognisable mandolin designs, based on the groundbreaking work of Orville Gibson in the late part of the 19th century, blending traditional mandolin and violin construction principles.  The F-Style mandolin has become one of the benchmark instruments for country, bluegrass, celtic, and traditional music forms.  And, if you take a listen to Chris Thile, they can do Bach to the full potential of the player.  Closely related to the Eastman MD814-V model, the F soundhole and its enhanced treble attack tilts the Eastman MD815-V towards Bluegrass and Country repertoires, compared to the F-holes on the MD815/V.
