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

Instrument Categories:

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.

The headstock inlay set is a variation on a traditional ‘Torch’ design with the inlaid abalone pieces rising through a passage created by inlaying a partial Ebony head plate onto the Flame Maple head. Above the torch is the Fin Mc logo in Mother of Pearl. An interesting touch is a lemniscate or ‘infinity symbol’ found on the treble and bass body sides. Position markers are inlaid lines at the fingerboard edges.

Overall this is a very fine instrument, well thought out, cleanly and well built, with a very nice finish. And it sounds and plays as good as it looks!
