Spruce-topped mandolin has excellent sound projection

For optimal projection, the Washburn M108SW mandolin is fitted with a solid spruce top. Spruce has long been used in instruments, ranging from violins to guitars and mandolins, for its bright sound and great projection. An expertly fitted ebony bridge makes full contact with the carved spruce top to capture and transfer the string vibrations of every note you play on the Washburn M108SW mandolin.

Mahogany back and sides deliver classic mandolin tones

Mahogany gives the M108SW a warm, well-rounded tone. Not only does it look great but it adds a midrange tone and volume that other woods don't. The Washburn M108SW mandolin sports a solid mahogany back and sides to deliver outstanding acoustic tones.

Outstanding!

I ordered this mandolin as an upgrade to one that I had purchased to learn on. I did a lot of research on this particular instrument before purchasing, and was certainly not disappointed when I received it. Beautiful mandolin with amazing tone and playability. Came ready to go out of the case. I loved the fact that I could pick the exact instrument that I wanted using pictures and serial numbers through the Sweetwater website. I even received the exact photos of my instrument used on the website by email after I purchased it! Great quality and amazing service through and through. You will NOT be disappointed.

Fun To Play

Just starting to learn to play mandolin and really like my Washburn. Plays easy and sounds great. Have had nice comments about the aged look. Some have thought it's an old mandolin. This is a nice package to start out with a really nice hard case included.
