Paris Swing Samois Mandolin Sunburst



Samois Swing Mandolin is the model that's most familiar to gypsy jazz enthusiasts. With a classic D-shaped soundhole, this instrument features greater bass response than the average mandolin, and a rich, full tone that makes itself heard in any ensemble. 

The peghead is made from ebony, with product designer Greg Rich's distinctive Paris Swing logo in white pearl and gold leaf, and a stylized abalone/M.O.P. "Tour Eiffel" inlay. 

The mandolin features select, solid AAA flamed maple back and sides, a flamed maple neck and a solid sitka spruce top. Each model is bound with tortoise-shell (natural models) or grained ivoroid (sunburst models) binding.
