Sorensen VX Mandolin Available Now --


Sorensen VX #2021106 -- SOLD

This Sorensen VX was borne of the deep glowing quilt of a billet of maple that I had been aging for almost 10 years and just kept calling out to be made into a special mandolin!

This Sorensen VX includes --


  • A one-piece Master-grade Sitka Spruce top with parallel tone bars

  • A one-piece Quilted Maple back and sides

  • Custom Macassar Ebony fingerboard, peghead overlays, and pickguard with 3D Sorensen binding

  • Stunning VX "Fancy Floral" Swirl mother of pearl inlay

  • 12" radiused fingerboard with Jescar Gold EVO medium frets

  • Custom matte gold Bill James  "Sorensen Traditional" tailpiece

  • Gold Waverly deluxe tuners

  • Beautiful sunburst  enhanced by a hand-applied oil varnish and shellac French Polish finish

  • Hoffee Carbon Fiber Flight case


This is only the second VX that I have built with the "Fancy Floral" inlay pattern.  The detail of this pattern on the headstock and neck is stunningly beautiful but was insanely complicated and difficult. Doing this pattern in the future will be a serious added price element!

This has been my Demo VX for about a year and is in almost new, but used condition -- there is a slight imprint from a clip-on tuner on the headstock, some indications of the ToneGuard use while being played.  I will include the ToneGuard to make that a benefit for the player!

  SOLD -- Please check with Steve for current Spec VX builds.
