Styled in an open pore vintage sunburst finish, the Ibanez M510E is an A-style acoustic/electric mandolin made with a spruce top and sapele back and sides. Its 13.8" neck is fashioned out of mahogany, sporting a purpleheart fingerboard and chrome mandolin tuners in the headstock.
The instrument offers a balanced tone that can be amplified using its built-in magnetic pickup and 1/4" output jack. When the mandolin is plugged in, onboard volume and tone controls let you further shape the sound, helping you achieve a timbre that cuts through the mix or sinks into it, depending on your needs. A purpleheart bridge anchors the strings to the body.
