Part of Washburn's popular Americana Series, the M1S is an A-Style mandolin with classic charm thanks to a combination of gloss tobacco sunburst finish and chrome hardware. Crafted from solid carved European spruce with quarter sawn Sitka spruce bracing paired with a maple back, sides and neck, the American M1S A-Style mandolin provides just the right chime and warmth, perfect for down-home country and folk music. Rounding out its features, it has an ABS chrome die-cast tuner and D'Addario J73 light gauge strings.
