SN 248. This two point A. Lawrence Smart mandola was special ordered by a young touring musician in 2012 who, in 2016 and playing with his family band, went on to have a #1 charting and Grammy winning bluegrass album. It’s a nontraditional art deco style designed modeled after two instruments Mr. Smart built for Arthur Stern, the renowned glass artist and mandolin aficionado. Per the customer’s request, the back and sides are crafted from big leaf Washington maple. The top is Engelmann spruce and the pickguard and headstock are Koa. It is a typically full and string sounding Smart mandola similar to the typical F designs. It’s in excellent condition with a little playwear and DNA here and there. There is a hole for a strap button but no button. On the case there is an “H” decal from the owner’s alma mater and the owners name engraved on the plate. This is a unique opportunity to own a fine instrument customer previously owned by one of the brightest lights in progressive bluegrass today.
