MANDOLINS, BANJOS AND BANJO MANDOLINS FOR SALE

click here to return to main instrument sale page.



This page lists mandolins, mandocello, banjos and banjo mandolins available. I currently have a very nice Suzuki mandolin and mandocello. There is only 1 left of either of these, at a greatly reduced price. The importers have advised that they will no longer be bringing these in, so once these are sold that's it. I have sold out of the Suzuki mandolas.

All prices are inclusive of GST. I am able to organise freight, if required. Cost varies with destination. For schools wishing to order, I am able to provide ABN and invoice the school.

Instruments listed here are either brand new, brand new but a "second" (i.e. not in perfect condition), or repaired.

The tuning pegs are original and still work fine, but are a bit sloppy. Has 22 tuning lugs, which is a lot more than I have seen on other Windsor instruments. Tail piece has "The Pyxe" engraved.

This was given to me years ago, and had a torn vellum head at the time. This I have replaced. I never play it, so, no point in keeping it.
