Top quality tonewoods
As we've come to expect from Pilgrim, only the best has gone into ensuring that the VPM400F is a truly outstanding model. With this in mind, solid tonewoods have been employed throughout; woods that will develop and become better with age the more that they are played with.
The body back and sides are built using solid flamed maple, which not only gives the mandolin a breath-taking finish, but also endows it with crisp and articulate base upon which to build its enviable timbre. Paired with the flamed maple is a divine solid spruce top, which projects the power developed in the body with the utmost gracefulness. Exquisitely shaped f-holes cut through the top, allowing the timbre to be expressed clearly.
In order to give the VPM400F an aesthetic worthy of its cool vintage-style tones, Pilgrim have treated the spruce to a visually stunning antique vintage sunburst finish. A semi-matt protective coating preserves the stunning finish for a long as possible, extending the longevity of the body finish and tonewoods for as long as possible. The top and back edges are completed in a cream binding, creating a seamless transition across the body.
Fitted to the body is a supple neck, which ensures a smooth and responsive playing feel throughout. Paired with the neck is a divine fingerboard, which offers up 29 willing frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The neck and fingerboard partnership provides a supportive and reassuring playing experience that allows you to play through the longest of sessions in total comfort.
The Pilgrim VPM400F is equipped with elegant tuning machines that allow you to adjust the tuning smoothly and easily, but rest assured that when it matters most, your strings with retain their tuning precisely. The headstock is also home to an ornately designed logo, and inscription. The nut at the top of the headstock aids in maintaining consistent string tension, whilst the top quality fixed ebony bridge dutifully maintains intonation and sustain with precision.
Performing with the Pilgrim VPM400F Redwood Series F-Style Mandolin in Antique Violin Burst is a professional quality instrument that is a joy to perform on. As noted previously, it is great for bluegrass, but equally at home when performing other musical styles.
