Description

Coming soon to a Dream near you! We're excited to be working with Joe Mendel again, this time with two gorgeous multiscale Octave Mandolins. This one in Torrefied Maple and Sitka Spruce is available here for pre-purchase! Once the instrument has been completed and we've recorded and photographed it, we will coordinate delivery to you. We have already spec'd this instrument out in order to bring you the best of the best, and so is not available for additional customization. If you would like to commission a custom build of your own, please check our site for available build slots, or you can reach out to us through our contact page to discuss a build to your own specs here.

I met Joe at the Woodstock Guitar Festival and was immediately impressed with his ability to make a tremendous instrument at a price every player can afford. His Octave Mandolins play like butter and sound huge.
