29 mm neck width at nut


This model features a carved top and induced arch back. This means the curvature of the back is defined by the back braces and frame contour. The overall tone is refined and very responsive with warm 'popping' to the notes. The maple body in pictured model provides the approved dryness and punctuation. The solid one-piece rosewood bridge widens the tone slightly and brings in more dynamics than with an ebony bridge.

In keeping with L+H, I used their typical mid-20s style-A template outline and dimensions as well as the position of the neck join. A traditional maple neck retains stiffness and strength and tone and is supported by an adjustable truss rod. Choices in binding that I have used are ebony, cocobolo, and rosewood.

The tailpiece is a short gibson style unit with my signature 'n.' stencilled through the cover.

Every Nyberg mandolin incorporates a solid carved-top, solid body plates, a flamed maple neck, ebony fingerboard, rosewood bridge, adjustable truss rod, nickel or gold professional tuning heads, ebony strap button, bone nut and and includes a hardshell case. Lifetime warranty.
