Handmade in the appalachian foothills

‚ÄčBased in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, Crooks Mandolins creates hand crafted,  F-style mandolins based on Gibson's F-5 design.  Traditional design is complemented with contemporary features which enhance the timeless beauty of this Florentine-inspired instrument.


I have recently begun making A5 models based on the 1923 Gibson Loar A5.  Check the "On the Workbench" page for construction photos and features.
