Gold Tone Mandolins are a top contender in the sub $1000 range. In addition to the standard F-Models, we also find some instruments that are more difficult to come by. These include a Rigel licensed acoustic/electric, a banjolin, an oval hole and a great little six string mandolin tuned as an octave guitar (every guitarist should have one).
An excellent stage mandolin for the player that needs great amplified tone with minimal feedback. The Gold Tone Rigel mandolin is tailor made for live shows. The GM-110 is versatile and suited to many styles.
A Gold Tone Mandolin specifically made with the guitarist in mind. This mandolin is strung and tuned just like a guitar (one octave higher). This is great for the guitarist that wants to add a little mandolin to a performance or recording.
The classic tone of an oval hole mandolin is a great alternative to the modern bluegrass instrument. Use it for any style that requires a more delicate tonal character. The Gold Tone GM-50 mandolin is a replica of a famous vintage instrument.
Our new A-style features an oil finish. This finish is much thinner than urethane and allows for the best vibration to maximize tone. We've radiused the ebony fingerboard for easy playability and included a fingerboard scoop.
The GM-60 is all solid wood F style with carved top. Traditional bluegrass punch and shop adjusted for excellent playability. The tone, playability, and workmanship will equal or surpass any other Pacific Rim made mandolins.
This solid body 4 string electic mandolin is great for Texas swing, folk, and even Rock N' Roll. The maple radiused fingerboard plays very quickly. The stacked humbucking pickup is extremely quiet for recording and includes tone and volume control.
