The standard A-style Gibson Jam Master Mandolin offers legendary craftsmanship without sacrificing Gibson's time-honored approach to achieving excellent tone and playability. What you get is simple: a roadworthy Gibson mandolin at an attractive price.
This mandolin from Gibson Original Acoustic Instruments puts all the focus on achieving unmatched performance with fewer trimmings. No matter what kind of music you play, the Jam Master Standard A-style mandolin fits into your particular setting.
Larger Frets, Remarkable Tonewoods, Mind-blowing Resonance
This austere, teardrop-shaped A-style model is a fresh take on one of Gibson's most popular mandolin lines, offering a simple yet elegant look, but with several performance-enhancing elements that players of this line will certainly come to appreciate. For example, F-holes remain unbound, and there's no neck or headstock binding. There are also no position markers on the fretboard (side dots only), and no inlay on the peghead, just the timeless Gibson logo decal.
Each A-style mandolin features a carved solid spruce top trimmed with simple single-ply binding to contrast its Sheraton Brown satin lacquer finish. The back and sides are constructed from figured maple, and the figured maple necks are carved and hand-shaped to the popular "rounded V" profile. Additionally, a 1-3/16" width at the nut provides enhanced comfort and finger room across the radiused ebony fingerboard. Thirteen of the instrument's 20 frets are clear of the body, and the frets themselves are a little bigger than those typically found on vintage mandolins”a modification that improves fingering for many players and playing styles.
Other advanced constructional features include Gibson's time-tested tone bar bracing, a radiused dovetail neck joint, a genuine bone nut, an adjustable ebony bridge and nickel Grover tuners.
