Girouard A5 “The Dragon”

Lauri dreamed up this instrument a while back.  We had a top that had beautiful grain, but exhibited a knot shadow.   Shortly after we carved a back which had some natural color differences which wouldn’t have worked well with our usual sunburst stain.  Lauri decided we should still use the perfectly good tone wood for something unique.  She designed the inlays and came up with the color scheme.  The instrument features an Engelmann parallel tone bar braced top, with quilted big leaf maple back and sides and a red maple neck.  1 1/8th nut, EVO gold fret wire, Allen cast tailpiece, truss rod, Rubner tuners, varnish finish and a Superior hard shell shaped case.  Stop in to The Music Emporium if you’d like to check it out.  https://themusicemporium.com/mandolins/Girouard_A5_The_Dragon
