earnesto earnestobackA classic European styled flat-top mandolin, EARNESTO is designed for the ethnic or classical musician looking for an alternative to the standard bowlback, archtop, or crack top mandolin. The large, deep body, and long (14 1/2″) scale length gives this instrument a clear brilliance, with strong bass and rich overtones, capable of a wide range of timbres and moods. EARNESTO is available in a variety of domestic and imported hardwoods, with a slotted or solid headstock.
