THE HIGH-QUALITY MANDOLIN FOR YOU
High quality is usually associated with a high price, but not always. The Fender FM-53S Mandolin, for example, offers a sweet and pure tone that you’ll want for everything from country to folk, pop to rock and whatever music you call your own. And yet it comes in at a price that’s reasonable even for casual players who want a mandolin with elegant features such as a teardrop-shaped “A”-style body with a solid spruce top, rosewood fingerboard, adjustable ebony bridge, gold-plated hardware, beautiful four-ply body binding, dual “F” holes and more.
“A”-style traditional mandolin
Solid spruce top with tone-bar bracing and Sunburst finish
Nato back and sides
Nato neck with 21-fret rosewood fingerboard
Height-adjustable compensated ebony bridge
Gold hardware, two-play tortoiseshell pickguard and dual “F” holes
An acoustic guitar with a solid top literally resonates with a more individual tonal character. Because it’s a single piece of wood uninterrupted by seams, laminates and the like, it vibrates with a more “organic” consistency and a more “true” voice.
Gold hardware imparts an elegant gilded look to an acoustic instrument; a pleasingly high-end appearance that isn’t overdone or ostentatious, but rather just the right touch of refinement.
WHITE BODY AND FINGERBOARD BINDING
White body and fingerboard binding present a refined high-end look that isn’t overdone or ostentatious. It’s just the right touch of elegant detail; the “icing on the cake” that takes an instrument a step up in stylish appeal.
