About This Listing

A. Lawrence Smart Mandolin $6,250.

Custom 2012 Lawrence Smart “A” Style Mandolin. 

A. Lawrence Smart ( has earned the reputation as one of the premier makers of fine acoustic instruments. His clientele include Chris Thile, Mike Marshall, Matt Flinner and Darrell Scott to name a few. His ability to select the best tone woods along with his artistry combine to make some of the most beautiful instruments in quality of sound and appearance.  

Lawrence completed this mandolin  in September of 2012 from the finest quality woods.

It has a one of a kind moon and star headstock inlay.

It has a James tailpiece.The James Tailpiece is an innovative mandolin tailpiece that brings together classic elegance with performance and function. The hinged cover features a unique, concealed latch that secures the cover and requires only a slight pressure to snapopen or closed. Elements of the latch also dampen the strings and cover from unwanted vibrations. To facilitate re-stringing, the cover flips up allowing easy access to string ends, and then flips down to hold string ends in place leaving both hands free.

This mandolin has a “Spirit-varnish” which generates higher quality tone and responsiveness compared to a nitrocellulose lacquer.

there a few blemishes on the finish but other than that the instrument is in very fine condition.
