Suzuki M-210 mandolin 1970's


Founded in 1859 in Nagoya, Japan by Masakichi Suzuki, the Suzuki company still continues today.

It was in the 1880s that he began manufacturing instruments such as violins and then mandolins until opening his first store in 1889.

The company continued to be run by his descendants before they separated into two Suzuki divisions after World War II.

It was here in the 1970s that this mandolin was manufactured.

We obviously feel the Italian inspiration and more particularly from Calace through his mandolins.
