Built similarly to the wildly popular Beavertail Mandolins, Peter Sawchyn's Beavertail Octave Mandolin offers exceptional tone, meticulous craftsmanship, and an exceptional feel at an affordable price-point. The octave mandolin features a domed X braced Sitka top and maple back and sides, 12-3/4" body, and 22-3/4" scale neck. Mahogany neck with adjustable truss rod, radiussed fingerboard, compensated ebony bridge, bone nut and high-quality Gotoh tuning machines. The instrument is finished in a thin satin Nitrocellulose lacquer finish with natural top and dark-stained back and sides.

Tuned GDAE, but an octave lower than a mandolin (thus the name), the Octave Mandolin is an easy lateral-move for most guitar or mandolin players, and offers something a little different in the mix. Made in Canada.

With padded gigbag
