JBovier Stringed Instruments

JBovier is an American manufacturer of mandolins and other stringed instruments.
Company history
JBovier Stringed Instruments was founded in 2005, when founder and designer Jeff Cowherd first began selling JBovier instruments out of his own small shop, Mandolins & More, in Walton, KY. Jeff's goal was to produce a professional-quality mandolin that was affordable for serious players like himself, but who didn't necessarily have deep pockets. As of 2013 the instruments are produced in China then shipped back to Jeff where he finishes them.
JBovier manufactures a variety A & F style acoustic mandolins, as well as a line of electric mandos.
