Acoustic Mandolin Teardrop A Style


This is another exclusive offer from one of Australia’s oldest and most trusted Musical Instrument Retailers – southcoastmusic. Our offer includes the celebrated and sought after Pro-SCM setup . . . the difference between a good – and a great instrument.

The Bryden SMA20 is an Arch Top Teardrop ‘A’ style Mandolin in Red Sunburst Gloss finish.

The features and build quality are excellent – especially at this price. The SMA20 has a 5-ply ivory bound Spruce top with an oval soundhole featuring a multi-ply inlaid rosette while the Mahogany back and sides feature single ply ivory binding.

The Maple neck has a 24 fret Ovangkol fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl dot inlays. The adjustable bridge and compensated saddle are also made from Ovangkol.

There is also a 3-ply black/white/black scratchplate to protect the finish while vintage inspired chrome open gear machine heads with metal buttons take care of tuning duties. The traditional vintage style tailpiece is made for loop end strings and includes an engraved press-fit string cover.

Pro-SCM Professional Setup

While the quality of this instrument shines through in spades, our customers continually tell us that our inhouse Pro-SCM setup has taken their guitar to another level altogether. Our skilled Guitar Technicians check and adjust anything that requires attention.

Our Pro-SCM setup includes:

• Inspect instrument construction and condition of the strings
• Check that the action meets factory or your specifications
• Check and rectify any buzzing, intonation or playability issues
• Check and adjust the nut and bridge string heights
• Hand roll the fret ends and polish the frets, oil the fretboard
• Ensure mechanical devices work properly including tuners
• Tune to pitch

As a paid service this setup can easily cost $200 or more – it’s included in this asking price.

Now, that really is unbeatable value!
