Please note: due to changes in regulations and constant design developments, we sometimes need to change details such as binding and inlay materials.
Identical in design to our Touchstone mandolin, but made from timbers reclaimed from the Scotch Whisky trade. The top is built up from sections of Oregon pine from a washback vessel from the Talisker distillery on the Isle of Skye. This vessel held hot spirit continually for around forty years before the timber came to Fylde. The back and sides are quartered oak from salvaged single malt Whisky casks, which have been soaked in maturing alcohol first in America or Spain, then in Scotland, for perhaps ten years before reaching our workshop. The neck and fingerboard are made from sections of both timbers. These timbers seem to suit mandolins remarkably well, adding a deep and mature nature to the sound.
Dues to the “concept” of this instrument, availability of the timbers is constantly changing, and being refined. There are lots of options which will be discussed when you make an enquiry.
