2011 Heiden F Heritage

2011 Heritage F model recently cleaned and thoroughly set up. This is an extraordinary sounding mandolin with tons of pop and sustain. It really does have an old soul with the 120-year-old Adirondack top and old sugar maple. The sound is very open and responds quickly to the light touch, with a lovely fat bass, clear punchy mids, and bell-like trebles. There are some minor dings and wear from moderate playing but is in overall great condition.

Comes in either a new Airloom Carbon fiber case or the original funky purple with rose interior Canadian-made Calton case.

2018 Heiden A Artist Plus

Here is an Artist A Plus model from 2018, recently back into the shop for a refret with Evo gold as well as some light finish refreshing. This one did suffer some minor expansion to the heel block due to humidity exposure, but has settled back down and is now stable — I have no concerns moving forward given standard care. This Artist A Plus is an overall beauty, and quite unique for my A styles, as it sports tortoise binding over white-and-black purfling. The mandolin is extremely responsive and, with a fresh Heiden setup, very easy to play

Comes in its original Canadian Mainstage case, in great condition.

2001 Heiden F Deluxe

Just finished a refresh on this lovely sounding 2001 Deluxe F model. I dressed the fingerboard and refretted with original nickel silver frets. It has a lovely red maple back and a wonderful Adirondack spruce top. There is only the Heiden logo on the headstock and no adjustable truss rod, opting for carbon fiber reinforcement and a very light, vibrating neck. The frets are glued in and the neck is very rigid. James tailpiece and Schaller tuners. Comes in a burgundy with vintage green interior Canadian-made Calton case.

Priced at $19,500 US (includes shipping and insurance)
