Mandolin Varnishing

Our 1704 violin varnish variation makes an excellent finish for mandolins. Robb L. Brophy, of Elkhorn Mandolins, uses this on select mandolins. He likes the way that it applies and the final result. Though not as hard as lacquer, it has a beauty, depth and "organic" qualities that are unmatched. Several of the instrument on his site are finished with this varnish.
