Crafted to fit the needs of any practicing player, or beginner musician, this instrument features fine craftmanship, easy to use tuners, and an excellent wood makeup carefully fit together to colorfully illustrate your playing with distinctive acoustics.

Fine Craftmanship
The engineered wood fretboard of the M1S-A A-Style Mandolin is carefully inlayed with dots so you can easily position your fingers, learn to play chords, and octave changes. With a finely shaped design, its D'Addario J73 light gauge strings are affixed to a tasteful decorative tailpiece.

Easy to Use Tuners
Nothing is more frustrating for a beginner that tuning pegs that stick.  The Washburn M1S-A A-Style Mandolin has 8 chrome diecast tuners to allow for smooth, accurate, and quick tuning to take away your frustration and save on time, so you can get to playing.  They're also dense and won't easily break.

Distinctive Acoustics
Its solid spruce top, maple back, sides, and neck, and quarter sawn Sitka spruce bracing provide the body and bones for superior tone, and will allow your sound to reach further without losing its distinction. They also add to the attractiveness of this mandolin, and to Washburn's Americana Series feel.
