Buy your Gold Tone GM-55A 'A' Style Mandolin from Eagle Music Shop and receive our premier workshop setup at no extra cost.

The sound qualityof this solid top mandolin is mainly due to a unique oil finish that is very protective yet allows the instrument to vibrate freely compared to a lacquer or polyurethane finish. The oil finish cannot be simply painted on, or applied and left to soak in. This hand rubbed finish must be rubbed into the wood using an abrasive applicator and a fair amount of elbow grease. Essentially, there must be enough heat and friction to break-down the wax content of the finish, so it will penetrate into the pores of the wood.
