OVERVIEW

Tone bar bracing for a deep range that speaks with clarity and authority.

The teardrop shape of the American OF Mandolin offers much more than you would expect from its simple design. The O style creates a boomy, deep range that speaks with clarity and authority in any playing situation you find yourself in.

Composed of Sitka spruce for the top and western maple for the back and sides, the OF has tone bar bracing which further complements the bold projection. Breedlove mandolins are said to be easy to play with a radiused fingerboard and oversize frets that allow for extreme comfort.

The finish on this OF is a sumptuous semi-gloss vintage sunburst, both beautiful to the eyes and to the hand. Includes case.

Comments about Breedlove American OF VTG O-Style Mandolin:

I was in the market for the lowest-priced American mandolin I could find. Honestly, they are all really outside my budget. But I bit the bullet and bought the Breedlove. I'm very happy with the purchase overall. I love part-time in Bend so buying an instrument from Breedlove (located in Bend) was pretty cool. I've been to the factory and the employees are serious about their craft. It was a little strange ordering the mandolin from MF, but the factory doesn't sell direct (that I know of). The fit, finish, and tone of the mandolin is excellent. Minor grips with the tuners and end piece (all flat-black, should be chrome). But still, I'm very happy with the instrument. The quality here is good enough that this is an instrument you could hand-down to your kids or grandkids.
