2001 Rigel G-110 Mandolin
Pete Langdell first engaged in mandolin building in the 1960s. Taking fundamental but astute acoustical theories, he formulated a totally radical process of attacking mandolin building. For the next two decades, he mulled, tinkered, and eventually refined this revolutionary method that would become the development of the Rigel concept in the late 1980s. This 2001 Rigel G-110 Mandolin Features a Carved Spruce top with F holes paired with highly-figured Vermont Maple back and sides. With the combination of these tone woods the Rigel G-110 produces a warm, powerful, and woody tone. Because of its tone and loud volume Rigel is one of the top choices for mandolin players around the world.
The Rigel G-110 also features an unbound ebony fingerboard with pearl diamond shaped inlays, abalone Rigel logo on the peghead, curved body edges, laminated tortoiseshell grain plastic pickguard, gold-plated Grover tuners and proprietary Rigel tailpiece, a Loar-style Ebony adjustable bridge, and an internal Piezo pickup and endpin jack. The Piezo Pickup produces the Mandolins natural voice and warmth at the perfect volume.
This pre-owned 2001 Rigel G-110 is in excellent condition and hard to distinguish used from new. There are some minor scratches, as well as a few string change scratches on the headstock as seen in the photographs below. The original Rigel hardshell case is included.
