oops..I didnt realize I was in the wrog forum for posting pics...Hey Scott..feel free to move them.
It's for sale?
Less talk, more pick.
I cant help but chuckle at that one Ken...but no..its not..Im under strict orders from my War Dept. to hold on to this one for a while. Ya know...its been along time since Ive had a mando with Schaller tuners....I forgot how good they are..these are super. Now if they would only come with removeable buttons with screws. I will eventually get a James TP and a Steve Smith bridge on her too.
You don't like the ones Bud set 'er up with?
..its not so much that I dont like them its that I like the looks of a Loar style bridge and I like the function of the BJ TP...what on it is fine but...hey..you know me..I like to hot rod things...
Congrats, Scotti, that is a good looking instrument. I hope it serves you well for a _long_ time.

Yes it is a Fir top..as a matter of fact..its a 100 yr old piece of Fir..And..the back and sides are old reclaimed wood too..thanks for asking.
How's the tone?
..the tone is fantastic..for a new mando I couldnt ask for any better. I can tell "the" sound is in there just waiting to mature. Its going to be a deep, throaty mando.
That would be KayLee..my 3 yr old daughter.
ill bet he is almost as bad as me when it comes to buying, selling and trading...its so addictive!

..I know...but house expenses prevail....I dont want to do it but I need to.
Yeah but Scotti, at least you're selling it for the right reason and making a sound investment in your future... I remember a long time ago when a certain mandolin player (who shall remain un-named) sold a late 30's Gibson to raise the money to buy a brand-spanking-new Triumph Bonneville motorcycle...then proceeded to total said motorcycle...leaving said mando player in the hospital with no Gibson mandolin OR Triumph Bonneville... #
Moral of the story - it ain't easy, but you're doing the right thing!

..yep..your right brother...its a hard thing to do...but I have to do what I have to do...Im sure I will get something else in the future....Seriously..this mando is a really good mando....probably the loudest new mando I have ever owned...and the tone is there too. It will make some one very happy....I need to let her go fairly quickly..so anybody interested give me a shout and we will talk.
