here we go folks, the latest installment in the mandonaught saga.
I'm gradually narrowing the nut as my playing improves...... I started making these as I couldn't play a normal thin mando neck. #
this one plays really nicely. #The bridge needs re-done as its slightly asymetrical, but it's a floater, so no worries there........ #the nut is also a whisker out so I'll re-do it aswell
it's a lot "tighter" sounding than the walnut mandonaughts. #it'll open up no doubt, but I personally prefer a bit more bottom end.....
ah well, it LOOKS great anyway!!
