The GEWA Select Series range is aimed primarily at those looking for an introduction to the world of mandolin or banjo playing.

The folk mandolin is primarily associated with American bluegrass and country music, but now also has a firm place in pop and rock.

The Select range includes A- and F-style versions as well as an electro-acoustic version. All instruments are equipped with a spruce top, while the back and sides are made of maple or mahogany, depending on the model. They owe their traditional look to the subtle vintage sunburst high-gloss finish.

Apart from the folk mandolin, hardly any sound is associated with traditional American music as much as that of the banjo. The GEWA Select series offers the perfect entry-level instruments in 4-, 5- and 6-string versions.

All models feature a 33 cm mahogany shell with a coordinator bar, an adjustable mahogany neck, an original REMO® Wheatherking head and chrome-plated hardware. For easy handling, they are equipped with guitar machine heads, which makes tuning incredibly easy.

Adequate protection is provided for all mandolins and banjos in the case supplied.

High-quality instruments are and always have been our mission.

But they must also be affordable and accessible to all.

GEWA German Engineered products are 100% conceptualised and designed by our experts in Germany. Know-How, experience and a constantly open ear for the needs of music creators characterise the work of the development teams.

In cooperation with partners and GEWA-owned production facilities all over the world, ideas are then turned into instruments. These locations enable us to use production techniques that are not available in this form elsewhere.

Our specialists regularly visit all the workshops to train the staff and to make sure that the production runs according to our ideas in all respects.

This enables us to guarantee a reasonable price at a consistently high production quality. But that is not quite enough for us.

That's why every single instrument is put through its paces again in our service workshops before delivery. Only in this way can we be sure that GEWA German Engineered is always the right choice.
