2010 White Dove A5 Mandolin
(Serial No. 022) Near mint condition. Peter Hutchinson is a pastor and builder near the Big Thicket in east Texas. This instrumet is all hand built and features highly flamed maple back and sides, red spruce Adirondack top, an engraved James tailpiece, a flat ebony fretboard with a 1 1/8 inch nut, and a hand stained oil varnish finish. Has gold Gotah tuners. Big meaty sound - here is a link to a video as played by luthier Richie Dotson. Very good sounding mandolin with good response all across the strings and up and down the neck. Just set up by my luthier so the mandolin plays like butter. Shows almost no playing wear at all. Neck is straight, frets are good, no repairs, and a new Dotson bridge was fitted by Richie. Excellent bluegrass sound! Comes with a rectangular Eastman case.
