Richard Morgan Mandolin (RM-8)

3,500.00 

This is a beautiful instrument with exceptional finish and sound but also multiple unique innovations. It features the two signature designs from Richard Morgan: the “radiant” soundboard producing extraordinary loud sound and the floating/removable neck design with adjustable action to let you easily experiment with strings height. But on top of that, it features two new design innovations: a soundboard mute for late night practice or for live performances or recordings to avoid amplification issues and finally a fixed bridge that eliminates intonation issues and need for bridge setup!

The Spruce soundboard gives it a clear but surprisingly sweet tone and a white-ish colour that makes it really beautiful. It is a great choice for multiple genres including classical & baroque music, due to it’s beautiful sweet tone and the amazingly deep bass that makes ideal for solos.

This mandolin is in new condition.

  • Richard Morgan

Richard Morgan

Richard Morgan loved the sound and music of mandolins long before he knew what they were.  Richard was born in 1957 in Sidney, Australia and the mandolins and guitars he designs and builds are the distillation of many years of careful design work. His unique instruments open up a whole new range of sonic possibilities within a very durable design. He now resides in Mt Isa, Australia where he builds a variety of mandolins, mandolas, octave mandolins, mandocellos and guitars, and continuously innovates and he occasionally blogs at theMandolinTuner.
