The Sorensen FX mandolin

I made a list of what players love about F-style mandolins as a start to designing a strikingly more modern version.  The FX features a sleek "Blade" scroll and headstock, a built-in armrest, Sorensen "3D binding", and the kind of tone, power and balance that Don Rigsby says, "Plays like butter!"


  • Master-grade Sitka, Englemann or Red Spruce top with parallel tone bars

  • Curly Red Maple or Sugar Maple back, sides and neck

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