F-style with f-holes spirit varnish!
Adirondack spruce top gives that crystal clear bark and punch you'd want in your f-style, and the highly flamed maple back and sides tie it all together! The oil varnish finish feels like a dream and it sounds even better. What an incredible mandolin at a price point that's tough to beat. Anything nicer than this will easily be a few thousand dollars more expensive.
