Troublesome Creek Honeybee HM-1SB Mandolin

The Honeybee
Our new “flat top mandolin” is anything but flat! With clarity and punch that strongly emulates its carved siblings, this little powerhouse transcends all others in its price range. Our hot hide-glued “Spidercone” x-bracing system forms the Appalachian Red Spruce soundboard into a pronounced, effectively graduated dish, giving these little guys a voice unlike anything else on the market today! Arched fingerboards, adjustable necks and hand-carved bridges ensure playability, honey-sweetness and sustain.

This instrument sounds like no other flat-top style we've ever heard with a strong, chunky and full chop normally found in carved top mandolins. When you consider that this an all solid wood, Made in USA instrument with a gloss finish and hardshell case you'll be looking far and wide to find anything to compare.


Select Appalachian Red Spruce top with sunburst finish and richly figured Walnut back & sides, herringbone rosette and BWB top purfling. MOP logo inlay and side dots. Ebony fingerboard and bridge. W/Golden Age nickel tuners TKl hardshell case.

This instrument has a slight scuff on back of headstock (we dinged it here in the store). We have waived the $ 200.00 Sunburst Upcharge and are offering at the $ 1799.00 price (same as natural finish)
