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.
