November 16, 2011 | Introducing the JBovier FM5 Mandola
Jeff Cowherd is back at it again, plugging neglected mandolin family market holes with his keen eye for quality tempered with a working musician affordability. His JBovier line of mandolins has evolved from the traditional A- and F-body mandolins into 4- and 5-string electrics and recently a tribute to additional classics like the Army/Navy flat tops.
His latest foray is a beautiful and very much welcome addition, an F-body mandola, his JBovier FM5 offering. We've been privileged with a personal week-long spin on his first prototype, and are pleased to say this instrument is an excellent value for the under $2K street price on the base model.
