Sorensen AX mandolin -- #2017074

This Sorensen AX mandolin was built in 2017 and has been with an multi-Sorensen mandolin owner in North Carolina for the past two years.  The previous owner is a meticulous caretaker of his instruments, so I was pleased to be able to help him sell this beautiful mandolin.

 

I polished, cleaned, and checked the set-up on this mandolin, and re-seated the bridge to maximize tone and playability.  Honestly, it needed very little attention to get back to the beautiful condition shown here.  Of course, there are a few signs of age -- a hint of the marks from a clip-on tuner on the peghead, and very faint indications of use of ToneGard on the back and sides.

This is an almost new instrument that has had the chance to mature out in the real world with a player, and also has the added benefit of a recent set-up, and TLC!
