The Bitterroot F20-O Octave Mandolin is an exquisite traditional, minimalist octave mandolin. With the Bitterroot, simply bring your talent and enjoyment of music to any setting, and let the Bitterroot do the heavy lifting. Players love the silky satin finish and the ivory binding that give this mandolin distinctive visual appeal. Combine the playability of the radiused fingerboard, the bluegrass muscle of the X-Braced, aged-Sitka top, along with the elegant traditional aesthetic, and you get one of the best, most affordable mandolins on the planet.

Note: photo does not have standard ivroid bound fingerboard.

The Bitterroot is Montana's state flower, whose fleshy roots were used extensively as food by the Native Americans, Lewis and Clark, and the pioneers and mountain men that followed. The Bitterroot Mountains follow the border between Idaho and Montana.
