RA-998-E (Nickel-Plated Bell Brass Finish, "Lily-of-The-Valley" Back Engraving)

The Recording King Engraved Metal Body Mandolin is one of the few mandolin resonators available today and the one most similar to the pre-war originals. This unique instrument has a nickel-plated bell brass body and a 10" hand-spun Recording King cone.

This mandolin has power, projection and style. With the Lily-of-the-Valley back engraving, this metal body mandolin looks and sounds like an antique, custom piece. Includes a featherweight case.
