Linden Mandolins are hand built the old way; one at a time. They are completely hand carved and shaped. No duplicating machines are used at all. Ever. Unlike virtually every other builder these mandoins are one of a kind. Each is hand shaped to discover the virtues and individual personalities of the wood and the combination of woods. Each is hand tuned carefully from start to finish to enhance the wood's natural qualities.
I have never liked or believed in plastic binding or plastic anywhere on an instrument. My mandolins allow you to see the quality of the wood from all sides.
Mr Linden builds mandolins, violins and gutiars. He lives in Orlando, Florida and Dover/Foxcroft, Maine.
