The Pilgrim VPMA60 Redwood Series A-Style Mandolin in Walnut Burr is a professional quality instrument that is perfect for a wide range of musical styles. The team at Pilgrim have gone to great lengths to secure exceptional build quality, incorporating sublime tonewoods, high quality hardware, and masterful construction. Whatever style of music you wish to play, and whether you're an amateur or a professional, the VPMA60 is a fantastic A-style mandolin.
As we've come to expect from Pilgrim, only the finest quality materials have gone into making the VPMA60 the magnificent model that it is. By employing solid tonewoods in the construction of the mandolin, Pilgrim has ensured that it will only improve with age, developing a unique character and timbre the more the mandolin is performed with.
The body back and sides are built using solid maple, which not only gives the mandolin an eye-catching finish, but also adds a sparkling brilliance to every note. Paired with the maple is a solid spruce top, which resonates freely to project with power and poise. The oval soundhole sits deftly at the top of the neck, adorned with an intricate rosette.
In order to give the VPMA60 an aesthetic worthy of its cool vintage-style tones, Pilgrim have treated the spruce to a visually stunning walnut burr finish. A semi-matt protective coating preserves wood for as long as possible, extending the life of the mandolin. The top and back edges are completed in a cream binding, creating a seamless transition across the body.
The body has been equipped with a slender yet sturdy neck, which ensures an enjoyable playing feel. Paired with the neck is a bound fingerboard, which is home to 20 willing frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The neck and fingerboard partnership provides a supportive playing feel that allows you to play through the longest of sessions in total comfort.
The Pilgrim VPMA60 has been fitted with select appointments, including elegant tuning machines that uphold tuning integrity with precision. The headstock is also home to an ornately designed logo. The nut at the top of the headstock aids in maintaining consistent string tension, whilst the top quality, fixed ebony bridge ensures a seamless connection between the strings and body.
Performing with the Pilgrim VPMA60 Redwood Series A-Style Mandolin in Walnut Burr looks, sounds, and feels every bit as beautiful as you'd expect from the team at Pilgrim.
