The NEW Kevlar/Carbon Sorensen Sprite Two-Point mandolin
The new Kevlar/Carbon Sorensen Sprite Two-Point has been created to deliver superior power, tone, and balanced response. Like the Kevlar and Carbon Fiber Supercars which are stunning the automotive world, these mandolins are truly the next generation of acoustic instrument innovation.
Each Kevlar/Carbon Sorensen Sprite is crafted with a complex and innovative blend of "cold-forged" 3D space-age components. Ultra-beautiful and strong Kevlar/Carbon 2K woven fabric stiffens and protects Steve's new "Xylux" composite material -- a proprietary resin-based blend of chopped carbon fiber strands, glass microbeads, and wood flour which is customized for each instrument component.
The resulting, precisely graduated, Kevlar/Carbon and Xylux blend delivers all the power and style of traditional "scrolled" wood-based mandolins without the inherent weaknesses and sensitivity of wood.
In addition, the new Kevlar/Carbon Sprites feature --
Fully adjustable two-way truss rod.
"Ballbearing smooth" stainless steel frets on a Richlite black composite fingerboard.
Traditional adjustable full-contact ebony bridge.
Shaller "Grand-Tune" delux tuners.
Integrated piezo pickups with end-pin jack.
Custom James "Sorensen" tailpiece.
The new Kevlar/Carbon Sorensen Sprite Two-Point mandolin will be offered in your choice of Burgundy, Midnight-Blue or Kelly Green Kevlar/Carbon 2k weave material and will be delivered in a matching custom Hoffee Kevlar/Carbon flight case.
