We carry real grained celluloid binding (“ivoroid”) in various combinations of white/black/white (w/b/w), ivoroid/black/white (i/b/w), ripple-grained ivoroid, and grained celluloid with a side black line.

Nuts and corner points are available in mother of pearl (as used on original F5 mandolins and H5 mandolas), bone, abalone, and Corean. Corner points come in sets of two and are available in bone (as used on original F5 mandolins and H5 mandolas), and Corean. Other material such as rosewood or ebony can also be used for corner points with great success.

Our beautifully crafted F4 rosette is a perfect copy of the original inlaid rosette used on F4 mandolins.
