The Dirty 30s Mandolin delivers classic old-time sound without the price tag of a vintage instrument.

The Dirty 30s Mandolin is a traditional A-style with vintage appointments. Despite the price, it’s more than an entry-level instrument. The f-holes have been specifically shaped for sound aperture and the 1-¾” body depth was chosen specifically to accentuate its tonal capabilities.

The solid spruce top gives the Dirty Thirties mandolin classic chop and projection, while the maple back and sides balance brightness and warmth for traditional old-time playing.

For vintage mojo, it’s stained tobacco sunburst, covered by a thin satin finish. The classic A-style body connects to a comfortable C-shaped neck.  Ivory tuners and classy MOP fretboard dots give it a rustic but refined look.  One of the only things you’re really giving up much on is the overall fit and finish.  It looks good from a galloping horse, but obviously on a sub $250 guitar, you wouldn’t expect that part to equal perfection.  But it’s a solid build overall.
