The aesthetic beauty of Aphrodite, with a sound that would make Apollo and all the other Greek gods smile.
Reviving a design aesthetic inspired by Kim Breedlove and offering an excellent appointment package for devoted Breedlove mandolin players the Pacific Northwest company introduces the Olympic OO™. This Premier Series mandolin is composed of a high grade Sitka Spruce top, and western bigleaf maple for the back, sides, and neck. Black binding on the body top, back and neck accentuate the shape of this teardrop O style.
The Olympic is finished with a captivating red toner full gloss finish. The radiused fingerboard (which offers great comfort) is adorned with a detailed mosaic pin inlay and oversize frets. Gold hardware is standard on all of the models in the Premier Mandolin line.
For amplification, the Olympic is equipped with the K&K Twin Internal electronics system. The teardrop shape of the Olympic offers much more than you would expect from its simple design. The OO™ style creates a pronounced, dynamic voice that speaks with the clarity and authority you have been searching for.
