Used Mandolin -- Great Opportunity! -- SOLD! 

Here's your chance to get into a Hayes mandolin at a great price. We have one used mandolin, played by Clay Hess of The Clay Hess band for over a year. (He is currently playing a newer Hayes mandolin, along with his Hayes guitar.) This mandolin is a hoss so don't wait around too long. Price is $4,500.

Clay Hess's review of a Hayes mandolin... 

​We asked Clay to come over and give us his thoughts on the newest Hayes mandolin we had finished. He had been playing it for a short time. Nothing was rehearsed. We just asked him questions and he answered. We did go through it twice -- once in the workshop and once at the studio -- as we didn't know which would sound/look best. We decided to go ahead and post both. Many of the questions overlap, but you get to hear him playing in between too, so we just left it all in. If you only have a few seconds to get Clay's abbreviated review, skip to 5:50.

Our "New" Mandolin Endorser -- Jeff Parker of Dailey & Vincent 

Well, technically, this isn't a "new" event in that Jeff Parker has been playing his Hayes mandolin with Dailey & Vincent now for almost a year now. I, however, am finally getting around to letting everyone know! So, please visit our Players page to see what Jeff has to say about performing with his Hayes mandolin, and enjoy this D&V video that includes a couple of mandolin close-ups!

  • Just finished the hole in the headplate to access the truss rod. Even though it gets covered up, it has to look great. #meticulous #rickhayesinstruments #f5 #f5mandolin #mandolin
