Mandolins

What Makes Them So Special? Unique design by Richard Morgan. Soundboard is lattice braced, each of the divergent pieces is under tension to form an S curve….if the tension were removed they would return to being straight. The tension or torsion is what “enlivens” most soundboards and this is a different way of achieving it.

I love Richard Morgan mandolins. The clarity of the sound and the lack of overtones makes each note distinct. The mandolin is a chameleon, to be used for almost all genres, including classical and jazz music.
I bought one of Richard Morgans first designs of these mandolins and it has the most amazing sound! I bet these new designs are even better. Great luthier!

I was drawn by the unique shape and build of the soundboards, which Richard said took him 25 years to perfect.
