1996 Ratliff R4

$ 2,500.00

Made by Tennessee luthier Audey Ratliff in 1996. You would not think to look at the condition of this mandolin that it's 23 years old. You really have to scrutinize the instrument closely to find any signs of use at all. The set up is great and the mandolin plays easily in all positions. Nice tonal depth from the oval hole, but brighter and "snappier" than most oval mandolins. Nicely balanced across the tonal spectrum and not overly tubby on the bass. Flat fretboard. 1-1/8" nut width. Comes with a hardshell case
