As a standard, Candy mandolins are available in 2 versions : Basic and Regular.
The Basic version is just as good as the Regular version regarding tone, playability, and building quality. It just has a simpler design, with less sophistication, which allows to reduce building time.
The Regular version shows more sophisticated features, such as wooden bindings, woods selected for their visual qualities, pearl dots, etc.

Custom instruments can also be built on request.

Custom Candy mandolin

I can build mandolins to your custom requirements.
Some minor changes such as timber replacement have little or no impact on price, unless you are after an exceptional piece of wood.
Custom stained finishes with or without shading are available.
I also offer pearl, abalone or wood inlaying, to your custom design. Prices range from less than 50€ for a simple small custom inlay to several hundreds for a large complex design.
Body shape can be changed to your own design, provided it allows the mandolin to be built and to work properly. That is an expensive feature as it requires quite a lot of specific tool and jig making.
Just tell me what you want (or draw it) and I will calculate your price.
