The Apitius "Club Jazz™", perfectly voiced for the Jazz musician.



Introducing the J-series mandolins by Apitius. Inspired by the legendary Jazz archtop guitars of D'Angelico, D'Aquisto and Benedetto, the J-series are designed with the needs and desires of the Jazz mandolinist in mind. With 10% more air volume and a larger soundboard surface than my F-models, these mandolins have a darker, mellower voice ideally suited to and voiced for Jazz.

The "Club Jazz™" takes its ques from the legendary archtop jazz guitars of the 30's and 40's and delivers a big, open sound with lush chords, warm tones and plenty of sustain.
