    Gold Tone Announces New GM-10: Frypan Mandolin with Case

    TITUSVILLE, FLA. — Gold Tone Music Group has announced the availability of their new GM-10 Frypan Mandolin with case, retailing for $499.

    About the new model, Nick Gehlman of Gold Tone told us, "We are delighted to introduce the Frypan Mandolin! At Gold Tone, we're constantly looking for ways to mix contemporary playing styles with traditional instruments. Now, we're bringing back the iconic design of the Army/Navy mandolin of the 1920s. Rather than sticking to the 'military contract' style of the original instrument, we've chosen high grade curly maple for the backs and sides and tight-grained Sitka spruce for the tops. The rosewood fingerboard sports the traditional mix of snowflake and dot inlays, and the open-geared tuners and scallop-style tailpiece perfectly complete the homage to the original version. Priced affordably at $499.99 with a hardshell case, this is the perfect mandolin for your traditional band, for beginners or just campfire picking!"

      New from Goldtone looks very much like the old Flatiron.

      Looks awesome! I love my pancake flat top.

      I really hope they sell the case separately - I can't for the life of me find a case that properly fits my old Flatiron and it looks like this one would be perfect.
