Phoenix Deluxe Neoclassical Mandolin 2002 CITES Certified International Shipping


1 in stock

SKU: 102010000542 Categories: ,


For sale is a custom-ordered Phoenix Deluxe Neoclassical Mandolin with its original Hiscox Case. Original owner commissioned the instrument a few years back direct from master luthier Rolfe Gerhart and is now gradually thinning his collection. Tonally brilliant with remarkable finish work. Shows signs of wear and tear mainly in the finish and back panel (standard swirling/pick rash, some worming and belt rash on the back, a few marks on the binding). A great chance to obtain a high-caliber, hand-crafted mandolin from a USA luthier at a fair price. These retail for $4800 new. Description from the Phoenix website:

A medium gauge string mandolin that excels at all kinds of music, and stylized with the clean elegant appearance of the neoclassical.


  • Nicely flamed red maple back, sides and neck
  • Red spruce top
  • 24 fret ebony fingerboard featuring the trademarked abalone vine created for the Unicorn Master Models of the 1970’s by Rolfe Gerhardt

  • No body bindings; ebony binding on fingerboard
