DF –  Classico is a modern mandolin, developed with luthier Federico Gabrielli. Its shallow bowl back make it very easy to hold and play, especially if you are not used to bowlback mandolins. This mandolin has the traditional sound of neapolitan mandolin.

The mandolin features a bowl back made of 11 rosewood ribs with maple purfilings, rosewood sides and ebony fretboard. The soundboard and the bracing are made of selected italian Val Di Fiemme red spruce with a helm burl pickguard.
