If you’ve ever wanted an instrument with some underlying noteworthiness, like say one that belonged to Michael Kang the mandolin player for the String Cheese Incident, then now is your chance. Run, don’t walk, over to your friendly neighborhood mandolin Cafe classifieds, and get out your phat check book. Make the check out for $19,000 and then sit back and bask in the glow of your collectable mandolin noteworthiness.
Well I suppose just owning a playable work of art that sounds as good as any mandolin ever will would be worth the price of admission. Three cheers for Gilchrists!
