Craig Pederson is a world renowned master luthier who has built scores of innovative Mandolins and Guitars for over 40 years in New Mexico in New York. Craig’s instruments are professional concert level quality across the board. Craig is semi-retired and is not currently taking very many commissions if any. His instruments are inspired by among other things the sensual shape of the violin. This instrument is a stunning work of art and Lutherie. It has a great neck angle and the neck is straight and true and intonates beautifully.
The scale length is 13 7/8 inches. The nut width is 1.25 inches. The sides and back are constructed of solid highly flamed Maple and the neck is one piece highly flame Maple. French Polish Finish The construction is based on violin construction. the overall length of the instrument from the tip of the headstock to the bottom of the tailpiece is 28.25 inches the waist is 10.5 inches the depth is 1.875”. Great note separation and volume. Excellent dynamic range and projection. Watch the video a couple of times with a good Bluetooth speaker. It has a hairline finish check line that is not into the wood on the back of the head stock overlay and there is also a small finish imperfection on the top of the scroll that is barely into the wood and is flush to the touch. When I spoke to Craig two years ago he said that he would charge $10,000 to commission this identical Mandolin today. I have it priced way too low it’s not gonna last long it’s a mandolin for life so make it yours.Craig makes his own instrument cases which are as exquisite as his instruments. A wonderful video accompanies this listing for your listening and viewing pleasure. Incredible homemade case.
