Our Octave Mandolin is inspired by the Gibson Loar-era archtop guitars of the mid-1920s and incorporates innovative engineering advances like a Tension Compensated Fret Scale to eliminate any sharpness of fretted notes higher up the neck, regardless of the action height.

The Octave Mandolin has a 14" lower bout, a 3" body depth, and features a solid, carved arched top and back. It demonstrates exceptional volume and a balanced tone both across the strings and up the neck along with the phenomenal playability you expect from a custom instrument.
