A-2Z Mandolin

Read more...The A-2Z is an upscale version of the A-2 with the same great sound. More complex body binding, slightly narrower neck (29mm) and a 'snakehead' headstock  make this one of our most popular A style mandolins. The A-2Z  has great volume and tone and is very evenly balanced. Great for traditional , orchestral or celtic styles.

A-5 Mandolin

AJZ-5 Mandolin

Read more...The AJZ-5 is a complete departure from the traditional mandolin. Influenced by the D"Aquisto 'Solo" series guitars, this mandolin has one soundhole on  the face, and side ports . With a unique cutaway headstock design, sleek neck and custom bridge , this mandolin is truly a Jazz one of a kind. The sound is truly unique as well, with very good definition between notes and a nice strong treble response for a great cutting  Jazz sound. The AJZ-5 comes  complete with an internal pickup system.

O-2 Mandolin

With more refined construction methods than the originals, the O-2 has better sustain and clarity than most of the sought after vintage instruments. The O-2 has a nice clean oval hole sound with the stunning beauty of a scroll model mandolin.

O-2C Mandolin

Read more... With the same specifications as the O-2 , but with a longer neck ( 15 Frets to Crosspiece) This is a true crossover mandolin between an F hole model and the Oval hole models. The Oval hole sound remains, but is slightly more ‘nasal’ than the shorter 12 fret model. With its classic looks and great playability , the O-2C is a Sawchyn favourite.

R-Series Mandolins

All R-Series instruments follow the regular instruments in size, design and scale. By reducing the amount of decoration we have been able to create a lower priced instrument that still looks , plays and sounds incredible. These are mandolins anyone would be proud to own.
