A Model - Custom Infinity Mandolin

Infinity Luthiers is owned and operated by Chris Oliver in Springfield, Illinois. Infinity luthiers builds, repairs and restores guitars, mandolins and more.

This A Model mandolin is built with sugar maple slip-matched back and rim, two piece hand carved maple neck, book matched Sitka spruce top, African blackwood fretboard and fretboard extender supports, Macassar ebony headstock top and back veneers with Grover 18:1 nickel tuners. The body binding is grained ivoroid with black line purfling. The fretboard binding is grained ivoroid with tortoise style fret position markers. Fret position markers are mother of pearl and the headstock features the hand cut Infinity Luthiers service mark. The bridge position is intentionally shifted back to the sweet spot of the body. That is a hand rubbed finish over a two color sunburst. The fretboard has a scooped florida with Infinity trademark inlay. An engraved James tailpiece and Cumberland Acoustic ebony bridge finish off this instrument.

The mandolin was completed on 11/11/2011 and photos taken on Hawaii's North Shore, December 2011.
