USED Petersen Octave Mandolin
Incredible octave mandolin from builder W.A. Petersen in excellent condition. There are just a few small stray pecks here and there that require scrutiny to notice. The tone is absolutely beautiful with a full and rich bass response but also balanced across the spectrum with nice bright trebles. A very rich sound with lots of volume. We just performed an in house setup and the instrument plays wonderfully in all positions with no issues whatsoever. We are unsure of the year as there is no date or serial number and the back wood is a bit of a mystery to us. We were told by the previous owner they believed it to be koa but it certainly has more of a rosewood type figure. The wood is very beautiful! Spruce top, 22-1/2" scale length, 1-3/8" nut width, radiused fretboard, triple tortoise top bound, Gotoh tuners. A strap button has been added at the neck heel. Comes with a nice hardshell case that fits the instrument perfectly.
