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.

Monteleone Grand Artist Mandolin Sunburst, 1985

Monteleone Grand Artist Mandolin Sunburst, 1985

Here is a rare and wonderful instrument – a Monteleone Grand Artist mandolin, built during 1985. John Monteleone is one of the world’s finest builders of arched top guitars and mandolins.  This mandolin was built at Monteleone’s shop in Bayshore, New York.  Though it draws from the Lloyd Loar era F-5, the Monteleone Grand Artist mandolin is not a copy, but a re-imagining of the design. It is more in line with what John D’Angelico would produce, showing Art Deco influences. And unlike the F-5, the scroll is hollow, rather than a carved block.
