Artist MD100 Red Sunburst Mandolin

This is the classic Tear Drop Shaped Mandolin with F-holes and our most popular model.  Made with Laminated Basswood for its body and Rosewood Fingerboard and bridge, this definitely is an affordable mandolin without any compromise to its tone. It features geared machine heads for accurate and spot-on tuning. You would pay upwards of $499 for a deal like this in a retail store.


  • Teardrop Shape
  • Body is constructed from Laminated Basswood
  • Solid Rosewood fingerboard and bridge
  • Geared Machine heads
  • Includes either a free Foam Hard Case or a Hard Case

Would you prefer this with a built-in preamp for plugging into an amp or PA system? Check out our MD200CEQ!

Artist MD100 Mandolin

This quite a nice mandolin and hard case, excellent value for money. Played reasonably well straight out of the box, just needed a tune up and will fit the bridge to the top better. Am really pleased with this instrument

Great first mandolin

This is my first mandolin but I have had some experience with other string instruments. It sounds great, no sharp frets, stays in tune pretty well and comes with a great case. The only problem I've had with it is with the bridge, the saddle has too much on the bottom so I will have to take that off and sand it down for me to be able to lower the action which I am finding slightly too high at the moment.

Great mandolin

A great little mandolin with sturdy fleece lined hard case. Perfect for a beginner like myself.

Very nicely finished, easy to tune , holds tune well. Sweet sound and plenty of projection. I would have no doubt this is the best Mandolin you will find at this price and I very much doubt you would get a better Mandolin at twice the price. As Molly Meldrum says do yourself a favour!

Awesome Mandolin

MD100+C; Impressive for the money

By: on 9 November 2018
I'd wanted to dabble with a mandolin while jamming with mates for a while now, and artist guitars has made me able to facilitate that yearning at a great entry level cost point. My main axe is an all solid epiphone dreadnought so I thought I'd be suitably disappointed with build quality and tonal properties from this mandolin. Well, eating my hat wasn't too much fun, but playing this mandolin is! It arrived in great condition (case, body neck, frets and strings all in great order), barely needed a setup, and sounds and plays great. Put some quality string on the beast and be prepared to be blown away all over again. This little mando defintiely punches above it's price tag, and will cut through the mix , un-amplified, in a live all acoustic situation no worries. Sure, I could've bought a nicer mandolin from a store, but I would've paid more than what I paid for the whole thing from Artist on a case alone. From the ones I did eyeball in a couple of Local Guitar Stores, quality would've been very comparable too. Added points for the case looking like a 30's mafia gun receptacle. Again, Artist has set the bar for low budget guitars very, very high. Impressive, boys. Keep it up.

Good product

Great Mandolin For Affordable Price

By: on 9 November 2018
This Mandolin is absolutely amazing beautiful tone and really nice quality and the case is an excellent bonus would highly recommend to anyone wanting a new mandolin or wanting to learn to play

Great instrument

This is a great mandolin, it has a good tone and the build quality isn't too shabby either. No pops or buzzes on the frets, the nut has been cut properly and I think looks great in the red sunburst. Good onya Artist Guitars.
