Gold Tone GM-70+ "Mastertone" F-Style Mandolin

This mandolin is well made, but tonally it’s a bit unique.  The tone seems more well suited to the jazzier styles of someone like Jethro Burns or some of the David Grisman stuff.  It kind of has that 1970’s hollow mandolin tone if you know what I mean.   


The specs read like those of a mandolin costing much more: ALL-SOLID WOOD CONSTRUCTION (spruce top, maple back and sides), radiused ebony fretboard with traditional inlays and adjustable radiused bridge, gold-plated hardware, bone nut, cast-brass tailpiece and Grover tuning machine-heads.
